Iran has announced its intention to initiate a legal case against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC). 

This action, articulated by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani Chafi, stems from alleged activities in the Gaza Strip.

Kanaani Chafi, in an official communication via the ministry's Telegram channel, disclosed that a specialized commission has been established to formulate this lawsuit.

The summit, held on November 11 in Saudi Arabia, brought together members of the League of Arab States (LAS) and the OIC.

A conclusive declaration from the summit underscored a unified request to the ICC's prosecutor for an investigation into purported war crimes by Israel in the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, directives were issued to the secretariats of the LAS and OIC to meticulously compile evidence of any war crimes potentially perpetrated by the Israeli military in the Palestinian region.

Within a 15-day framework post-establishment, these committees are obligated to submit detailed reports of their findings to the foreign ministerial councils of the LAS and OIC. 

Subsequently, updates on potential war crimes evidence will be systematically presented on a monthly basis.
