    A Human Rights group has filed a lawsuit against Israeli leaders at the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the war crimes they have committed in the Gaza Strip.

    The chairwoman of the International Alliance for Combating Impunity, Mai al-Khansa, along with a number of European lawyers, filed the lawsuit against the Israeli political and military leaders in The Hague, a Press TV correspondent reported on Monday.

    Khansa said she will submit testimonies from Israeli soldiers themselves about the crimes they committed during the war which left at least 1,350 Palestinians killed in the strip.

    She will also present testimonies about UK arms companies which were providing Israel with weapons during the offensive in the coastal strip.

    The group has earlier filed another lawsuit over Israel's long-running blocked on the Gaza Strip.

    The coastal strip has been under a tight blockade which has been in place for over 22 months, even during the 22-day war on the region.
