Iran wants Interpol warrants for Israel leaders

March 2, 2009 15:36

Iran's judiciary is demanding Interpol issue arrest warrants for 15 Israeli officials over what Teheran calls "war crimes" committed against Gaza Palestinians during the IDF's recent offensive in the territory. Teheran prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi said an Iranian court set up to investigate Iranian complaints against Israel had provided Interpol with a list of Israeli leaders implicated in the 22-day offensive and details on the "charges" against them. Iranian state television on Monday quoted the prosecutor as saying Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defense Minister Ehud Barak were on the list. Others are top Israeli military officers involved in the Gaza conflict.
