Under pressure from all sides, Netanyahu refuses to change course in Gaza


TEL AVIV — With Israel’s war against Hamas now in its eighth month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a rising crescendo of criticism at home and abroad over his management of the conflict — threatening his leadership and his country’s place on the world stage.

The prosecutor for the International Criminal Court announced Monday that he would seek arrest warrants for Netanyahu and his defense minister on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza. Within the prime minister’s own cabinet, key ministers say he is threatening the military’s tactical achievements, and they have set a deadline for him to map out a postwar plan. On the streets, protesters accuse him of prioritizing his political survival over the return of Israel’s hostages.
