Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that the Palestinian Authority has more to worry about than Israel, after PA President Mahmoud Abbas signed the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

"The one who should fear the International Criminal Court at the Hague is the Palestinian Authority, which is in a unity government with Hamas, a declared terrorist organization like ISIS that commits war crimes."

He added that Israel would take steps in response and defend its IDF soldiers - "the most moral army in the world."

"We will repel this latest effort to force diktats on us, just as we have repelled the Palestinian turn to the UN Security Council," he said, a day after a Palestinian draft resolution calling for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines was voted down in the world body.
