Reporters Without Borders seeks ICC war crimes probe in Gaza

Reporters Without Borders has filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court after Israeli occupation bombed buildings housing The Associated Press and other media organizations in Gaza.

“The headquarters of 23 local and international media outlets were destroyed after being attacked by Israeli strikes,” it said in the complaint Palestinian and foreign media offices.

The Paris-based Reporters Without Borders says in a letter to the court’s chief prosecutor that the offices of 23 international and local media organizations have been destroyed over the past six days.

The group says the Israeli military’s “intentional targeting of media organizations and intentional destruction of their equipment” could violate one of the court’s statues. It says the attacks serve “to reduce, if not neutralize, the media’s capacity to inform the public.”
