Palestinian file lodged with international court

The Palestinian government on Monday handed over a report on the death of an 18-month-old boy in an arson attack to the International Criminal Court at The Hague, the foreign ministry said.

A file of “Jewish settler terrorism” was handed over to prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki said in a statement.

Ali Saeed Dawabsheh was burned to death when Jewish extremists torched his family home in a village near the West Bank city of Nablus on Friday. His parents and brother were seriously injured.

Malki said the document - focusing on the arson but also including details of other attacks on Palestinians by Jewish settlers - was prepared on the orders of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Malki met with Bensouda to follow up on preliminary examinations into the situation in the occupied territories, Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

A previous file was submitted to the prosecutor in June on alleged crimes committed by Israel over the previous year, including last summer's military offensive in Gaza, illegal settlement activity and the issue of Palestinian prisoners, WAFA said.
