units in East al-Quds and the West Bank, including in the controversial
“By continuing these war crimes of settlement activities on our lands
and stealing our money, Israel is pushing and forcing us to go to the
ICC,” Sha’at said.
“We have to move to concrete steps so Israel knows it has something

law,” Ashrawi said.
