Israel slams 'scandalous' ICC war crimes probe

AFP , Friday 16 Jan 2015

Israel denounced Friday the International Criminal Court's "scandalous" decision to launch a preliminary probe into possible war crimes committed against Palestinians by Israeli forces.

The sole purpose of the preliminary examination is to "try to harm Israel's right to defend itself from terror," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement.

He said the decision was "solely motivated by political anti-Israel considerations," adding that he would recommend against cooperating with the probe.
