The Palestinian Foreign Ministry called on the International Criminal Court to rapidly launch investigations into crimes committed by the Israeli occupation and settlers.
In a statement late on Saturday, the ministry slammed the Israeli occupation's brutal suppression against the Palestinians who stage peaceful rallies against settlements.
It also condemned the demolition of Palestinian houses in Jerusalem.
It urged the international community, topped by the UN Security Council, to press the Israeli government to stop building settlements in Mount Sabih, calling on the UNHCR to hold Israel accountable for its crimes against the Palestinians.
