Impeding relief to Gaza may be crime under ICC jurisdiction: prosecutor

Cairo (AFP) – “Impeding relief supplies… may constitute a crime within the court’s jurisdiction,” says ICC prosecutor Karim A. Khan, speaking after he visited the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing. Since the October 7 attack by Hamas militants on Israel, which killed at least 1,400 people according to Israeli officials, Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry says more than 8,000 Palestinians have been killed by retaliatory bombardments by Israel, nearly half of them children.
