100 Chilean Lawyers Accuse Netanyahu of War Crimes, File Complaint at ICC
About 100 Chilean lawyers, most of whom are of Palestinian origin, have filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court regarding the crimes of the Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: The complaint alleges charges of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity committed by the Israeli army on Palestinians.
“They are demanding that [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu bear criminal responsibilities, to impose an immediate ceasefire,” said Francisco Shahwan, the chairman of the foreign relations committee.
The complainant is calling for the issuance of an arrest warrant against Netanyahu and other officials and soldiers responsible for these crimes, Shahwan added.
Israel started its military aggression against Gaza on October 7 following an operation by the territory's resistance groups, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm. 
The Palestinian Health Ministry said on Saturday, at least 122 Palestinians were killed and 256 others wounded by Israeli bombardment over the past 24 hours in Gaza. That brings the total death toll in Gaza since 7 October to 22,722 Palestinians, with 58,166 others wounded.
The war has left Gaza in ruins, with half of the coastal territory's housing damaged or destroyed and nearly 2 million people displaced within the densely-populated enclave amid shortages of food and clean water./Fars News
