Anadolu Agency reported that the head of the Media Office in Gaza, Salam Marouf, urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) to include a statement made by Israel’s Heritage Minister, Amihai Eliyahu, as evidence of Israel’s war crimes. Eliyahu had suggested that one of Israel’s options in the war in Gaza was to drop a nuclear bomb on the Strip.

“We call on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to include this audacious and outrageous statement as evidence of the occupier’s acknowledgment of committing and inciting crimes,” Marouf said. “We hope to see a practical and concrete effort from the international legal system that leads to seeing these killers in the dock to receive fair punishment for their horrifying crimes.”

TribunalForum, as the paper of record for war crimes tribunals of those participating in the October 7 attacks and those thereafter against Israel, covers procedural and substantive matters related to any such tribunal.

No reports exist of Israel using a nuclear weapon in any conflict at the time of publishing.
