Hamas welcomes International Criminal Court ruling on Palestinian jurisdiction

The Islamic movement Hamas on Saturday welcomed the International Criminal Court (ICC) ruling that it has jurisdiction over the Palestinian territories.

“Hamas welcomes the court ruling,” he said, adding that the ruling is “an important step in achieving justice and fairness for the victims of the Israeli occupation.”

The Hague-based ICC on Friday ruled that the court has jurisdiction over the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories, paving the way for a criminal investigation.

“The territorial jurisdiction of the Court in the situation in Palestine extends to the territories occupied by Israel since 1967, namely Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem,” the ICC said in a press release.

Hamas has controlled the Gaza Strip since it ousted the Fatah-dominated Palestinian self-government in the summer of 2007. Since then, the Palestinian territories have been divided into a Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and a Hamas-dominated West Bank. Fatah.

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh immediately hailed the ICC ruling, describing it as “a victory for justice, humanity and freedom, as well as reparation for victims of Israeli war crimes and their families.”

Israel, which is not a member of the court, rejected the ICC ruling.
