Itamar Ben Gvir, Israel's far-right national security minister, said Gaza should be under "full Israeli control" and populated with Jewish settlements, suggesting that he himself would move to the war-torn Palestinian enclave. In an interview with Israeli news outlet Kikar HaShabbat, Ben Gvir said that "encouragement of voluntary emigration" of Palestinians from Gaza was the "last" and "most important step" in achieving Israel's total occupation. "If the emigration happens, and hundreds of thousands leave, you'll be able to bring more and more and more people in," he added. He emphasised that "many more" settlers would be needed to reconstruct the existing abandoned settlements and establish new ones across the enclave, adding that he himself would be "very happy to live in Gaza".

The International Criminal Court's (ICC) Prosecutor said he received threats while conducting investigations against top Israeli officials, with a senior figure telling him the Court was "built for Africa and for thugs like Putin", and not for the West and its allies, Anadolu Agency reports. In an interview with CNN, Karim Khan said: "I've had some elected leaders speak to me and they were very blunt. This Court is built for Africa and for thugs like Putin' was what one senior leader told me." "We don't do it like that," he said, adding: "This Court should be the triumph of law, over power and brute force: grab what you can take what you want, do what you will."

PARIS, May 21 (Reuters) - France backs the International Criminal Court and the "fight against impunity", its foreign ministry said after the ICC prosecutor requested arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas leaders for alleged war crimes. On Monday, ICC prosecutor Karim Khan said he had requested arrest warrants for Netanyahu, his defence chief Yoav Gallant and three Hamas leaders, including its chief, Yahya Sinwar. If such warrants are issued, members of the court, which includes nearly all countries of the European Union, could be put in a diplomatically difficult position.
