According to Bloomberg, a coalition of seven countries led by the United States has requested the International Criminal Court in The Hague to halt the trial regarding the lawsuit against Israel. They urged the court not to issue arrest warrants targeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders.

The publication explains that this request stems from concerns that a court verdict could endanger the ongoing negotiations with Hamas and the potential release of hostages.

Two sources cited by the newspaper expressed worry that the issuance of arrest warrants could prompt Israel to withdraw from the ceasefire in Gaza. These same sources indicated that the G7 nations have initiated discreet diplomatic efforts to convey this message to the court in The Hague.
