ICC rules it has jurisdiction over Palestinian Territories

Judges at the International Criminal Court (ICC), on Friday, ruled that the Hague-based court has jurisdiction over alleged war crimes committed in the Palestinian territories, opening the door for a possible investigation.

 

Judges said their decision was based on jurisdictional rules in its founding documents and does not imply any attempt to determine statehood or legal borders.
