Moussa Abu Marzouk, a Hamas leader based in Cairo, said he had signed a document Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says all factions must endorse before he proceeds with the ICC push.There was no immediate comment from Israel, which is also not an ICC member.A statement from the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not directly address the Hamas move, but it quoted the Israeli leader as telling U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Hamas was guilty of such crimes. Both Israel and Hamas defend their military operations as consistent with international law.Hamas, which dominates Gaza, is shunned by Israel and the West as a terrorist group.As neither Israel nor the Palestinians are ICC members, the court currently lacks jurisdiction over Gaza.
