Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday vowed to deny the Palestinians in their efforts to "drag IDF soldiers and commanders to the International Criminal Court in The Hague."

"The Palestinian Authority has chosen confrontation with the State of Israel, and we will not sit with folded hands," Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. "Those who need to answer before a criminal court are the heads of the Palestinian Authority, who have forged an alliance with the war criminals of Hamas."

"IDF soldiers will continue to defend the State of Israel with determination and might," the premier said. "Just as they defend us, we will protect them with that same determination and the same might."
