ICC begin holding public hearings on Israel
The sessions come in the context of the United Nations General Assembly’s request to obtain an advisory opinion from the court on the effects of the Israeli occupation that has continued for more than 57 years, and will continue for six days between 19 and 26 February.
During the sessions, the court is scheduled to hear briefings from 52 countries - an unprecedented number in the history of the court - in addition to the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the League of Arab States.
