Kamala Harris voices US opposition to ICC probe during call with Benjamin Netanyahu

In her first call with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu since taking office, US vice president Kamala Harris reiterated Washington’s opposition to the International Criminal Court's probe of alleged war crimes in Gaza and the West Bank.

They “noted their respective governments’ opposition to the International Criminal Court’s attempts to exercise its jurisdiction over Israeli personnel,” the White House said.

The ICC investigation, which covers events dating back to 13 June 2014, was lauded by Palestinians and heavily criticised by the US and Israel.

It was also condemned by some Jewish groups, with Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl warning it will “will only further polarise Israelis and Palestinians.”
