World leaders at the Islamic-Arab summit have called for an immediate end to Israeli military operations in Gaza, rejecting Israel’s justification of its actions as self-defense.

The Islamic-Arab summit, hosted by Saudi Arabia, has urged the International Criminal Court to investigate “war crimes” it accuses Israel of committing in the Palestinian territories. The leaders have called for an end to the siege of Gaza and a halt to arms exports to Israel. But the leaders didn’t approve collective economic and political measures against Israel.

The International Criminal Court is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague, Netherlands. The ICC is the first and only permanent international court with jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression. It is intended to complement existing national judicial systems and it may therefore exercise its jurisdiction only when national courts are unwilling or unable to prosecute criminals.
