Gaza committee calls on prosecutor to arrest Mofaz

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A Gaza-based committee on Sunday called on the Palestinian general prosecutor to issue an arrest warrant for the Israeli deputy premier Shaul Mofaz, who had been scheduled to travel to Ramallah for a meeting with the Palestinian president.

The Tawthiq committee said Mofaz was considered to have military responsibility for the siege on Jenin refugee camp in 2002, and said his actions could constitute war crimes under international law.

Mofaz’s visit was called off this week, but Israeli and Palestinian officials gave conflicting accounts of why. A Fatah leader cited Palestinian public opinion while Israeli media said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tensions with Mofaz played a role.
