A petition posted on the British parliament’s website for the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over crimes against Palestinians has garnered over 90,000 signatures.
The petition, called ‘Benjamin Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes when he arrives in London,’ has now over 90,500 signatures.
Activists say under international law, Netanyahu must be arrested for war crimes against Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip last year. They want the British government to arrest Netanyahu upon arrival in the UK for an official visit next month.
The petition was launched earlier this month.
The initiator of the petition, British citizen Damian Moran, has told Press TV in an interview that Netanyahu should not be allowed to walk around freely after Israel’s bloody war of the 2014 summer in the Gaza Strip.
