Dutch court: No legal grounds to hear war crime case against Benny Gantz

A Dutch district court on Wednesday ruled that it does not have jurisdiction to hear a case against former Israeli Armed Forces chief Benny Gantz brought by a Dutch Palestinian who lost six relatives during a 2014 bombing of Gaza.
"A Dutch judge is not competent to rule on the case of the claimant," presiding Judge Larisa Alwin said.

Gantz was Chief of Staff of the IDF from 2011 to 2015, and was in charge during the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict known as Operation Protective Edge.
