Netanyahu slams Biden for rejecting sanctions against ICC

by ian

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had some harsh words for the Biden administration after the White House refused to back sanctions against the International Criminal Court.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers recently announced plans to sanction the ICC after its lead prosecutor requested arrest warrants for top Israeli leaders over alleged war crimes in Gaza. The White House said this week that Biden does not support sanctioning the ICC, which Netanyahu said is disappointing.

The White House said it does not believe that sanctions are “an effective or an appropriate path forward.”
