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.
