Palestine and Israel: the conflict in the Middle East has been going on for decades, resulting in a significant loss of human life. The issue has been of concern to the international community since before the founding of the State of Israel, over sixty years ago; however, with the State of Palestine formally joining the International Criminal Court earlier this year, the ball has been thrown into The Hague’s proverbial court. Now, more than ever, the armed conflict in Gaza is an international affair. Mr. Fitzsimons examines the legal hurdles awaiting Palestine during the ICC preliminary examination.
