No: 49, 6 February 2021, Press Release Regarding The Ruling Of The International Criminal Court On Its Jurisdiction Over The Occupied Palestinian Territories

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 06.02.2021

We welcome the ruling of the International Criminal Court (ICC) that it has jurisdiction over the Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, which has been under Israeli occupation since 1967.

This decision of the ICC is a meaningful step towards holding Israel accountable for its crimes in the Palestinian territories and identifying those who are responsible for these crimes.

The ICC decision will also contribute to the implementation of the Resolution on the Protection of the Palestinian Civilian Population, which was adopted at the UN General Assembly, under the leadership of Turkey during its Summit Presidency of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

The support of the international community to this decision is of great importance to establish deterrence against Israel's excessive and disproportionate use of force against the Palestinian people.
