The joint Labor-Hatnua campaign headed by Tzipi Livni and Isaac Herzog released a statement on Friday vowing to resist any attempts by the International Criminal Court to haul Israeli officials and soldiers onto the dock for war crimes if elected.

“A government headed by us will stand steadfastly against any unilateral move by the Palestinian Authority and it will fiercely oppose legal measures brought forward by the International Criminal Court,” the statement read. “We will know how to enlist the support of the international community in order to give us the needed diplomatic umbrella that will enable the army to take action and grant our soldiers and commanders a legal bulletproof vest.”
