The head of the Arab League said his organization wants the International Criminal Court in The Hague to investigate the deaths last week of 19 Palestinians during protests near Gaza's border fence with Israel.A protest by tens of thousands last Friday led to deadly clashes in which Israeli forces killed 17 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,400 protesters, the bloodiest day since a 2014 war. The date is mourned by Palestinians as their "nakba," or "catastrophe," when hundreds of thousands were forcibly uprooted in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation.Authorities did not explain why the announcement of the March 12 arrests was delayed for more than three weeks, though Israel often keeps such cases under a gag order while it investigates.
