Morocco ‘May Nab Top Israeli Officials’

Top Israeli officials might be arrested if they come to Morocco due to Tel Aviv’s 2008 attack against Gaza, according to a legal bid launched by a group of lawyers.

"The complaint is against Israeli officials who led the attack against Gaza at the time," a spokesman for the lawyers, Khalid Soufiani, told AFP on Monday.

The complaint accuses former premier Ehud Olmert, ex-foreign minister Tzipi Livni and incumbent Defense Minister Ehud Barak of breaching laws to protect civilians, Soufiani said.

Once the prosecutor accepts the complaint, those named will face arrest if they come to Morocco, he added.

"We don’t know if the chief prosecutor will accept our complaint and follow it up," said Soufiani.

More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli troops in the offensive against the Gaza Strip in late December 2008-January 2009.

The group who filed the complaint includes one French lawyer, one American and three Moroccans.
