Send a Letter to the ICC: Israel is Committing War Crimes!

Since October 7, Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, have made multiple statements inciting genocide in Palestine. Since the start of its attack on Gaza, Israel has committed war crimes and crimes against humanity, giving the International Criminal Court (ICC) jurisdiction over this case. The people of Gaza cannot bring this issue to the ICC themselves since Israel has repeatedly cut off electricity and telecommunications. Join CODEPINK in sending letters to the ICC urging prosecutor Karim Khan to investigate Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.

Dear Prosecutor Khan,

I write to ask for you to issue an investigation into the continuous barrage of Israeli airstrikes on densely populated civilian areas within the Gaza Strip, the bombing of hospitals, schools, and United Nations buildings, the suffocating siege imposed on this territory, the forced displacement of its population, the use of toxic gas, and the denial of necessities, such as food, water, fuel, and electricity since October 7, 2023. These actions amount to genocide and incitement to genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, as defined by Articles 6, 7, and 8 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), respectively. Article 5 of the Rome Statute grants the ICC jurisdiction over this issue. 

It should be noted that the Gaza Strip, where Israel committed these crimes, is 25 miles long and 3.7-7.5 miles wide, and it is densely populated by 2.3 million people, half of which are children.

I ask that you issue arrest warrants expeditiously for those suspected of these crimes within the Israeli political, military, and administrative apparatus, especially President Isaac Herzog, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defence Minister Yoav Gallant and others.  

Sincerely,

Will you sign?
