ICC Takes First steps ininvestigating Israel's War Crimes in Palestine

On Friday January 16 the International Criminal Court opened a preliminary investigation into war crimes committed by Israel in Palestine, including East Jerusalem, since June 13, 2014.  This is a welcome move, but it is a first step towards a first step
A preliminary examination is not an investigation but a process of examining the information available in order to reach a fully informed determination on whether there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an investigation pursuant to the criteria established by the Rome Statute.

I will have more to say later.
