“A threat against IDF soldiers [Forças de Defesa de Israel] and the public figures of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East and the only Jewish state in the world, is scandalous”, protested Netanyahu in a message published on his Telegram account.

“We will not give up. Israel will continue until victory in our just war against the abominable terrorists who seek to destroy us. We will never stop defending ourselves”, stressed the Israeli Prime Minister.

Netanyahu noted that while none of the ICC rulings will affect Israel’s actions, “they will create a dangerous precedent that threatens soldiers and public figures in all democracies fighting criminal terrorism and dangerous aggression.”

Nicaragua requested five provisional measures, namely that Germany “immediately suspend its aid to Israel, in particular its military assistance, including military equipment.”
