Crimes allegedly carried out by Israel and Palestinian factions during a conflict in the Gaza Strip last year are to be investigated by the UN-backed International Criminal Court (ICC).

The 50-day conflict between Israel and the Palestinian faction, Hamas led to the deaths of 2000 Palestinians and 70 Israelis, as well as the widespread destruction of property.

The Palestinians formally applied for membership of the court at the beginning of January.

Cristina Silveiro asked the ICC's Emeric Rogier about the background to the investigation.
