Amnesty International called on both Israeli and Palestinian authorities to cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherland which was launched in January 2015.

Victims of war crimes committed by both sides in the 2014 Gaza conflict “could be a step closer to justice,” Amnesty International said. “The evidence is overwhelming.”

The UN Independent Commission of Inquiry, mandated by the Human Rights Council in July 2014, investigated the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip and Israeli actions in the West Bank including East Jerusalem, as well as the activities of Palestinian armed groups in Gaza, including their attacks on Israel.
