The International Criminal Court of Justice could hold Israeli culpable for West Bank settlement activity if the Palestinians become party to the Rome Statue, a United Nations Human Rights Council probe concluded on Thursday.

The three-person fact finding mission released a draft copy of its report in Geneva in advance of a March 18th council debate on the matter.Israel cut its ties with the council when the probe was announced last March, in anticipation that it would add fuel to the Palestinian drive to bring Israel to the ICC on the settlement’s issue.

Israel believes that the resolution of the West Bank settlement issue should be determined through direct talks, and not imposed by the international community outside the framework of negotiations.
