Israel and the United States have both refused to sign up to the International Criminal Court, which was set up in 2002 to be the only global tribunal trying the world's worst crimes, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a dilemma: stir up nationalist sentiment through harsh action against Gaza and possibly a military miscalculation, or avoid escalating tensions and be viewed as soft.

Celebrations are taking place on the streets of Gaza following a ceasefire deal after two days of heavy Israeli bombardment on Gaza. But Israelis are burning tyres to show their anger at the agreement.
Israeli strikes on Gaza have increased this year leaving behind many civilian casualties. The recent spike in violence, triggered by a deadly incursion by Israeli forces into Gaza, brought both sides to the brink of a fully-fledged war.
The announcement came after Israeli strikes in Gaza killed three Palestinians, raising the death toll in Gaza to seven in 24 hours, and 14 since Israel's raid began on Sunday.

Every Friday, hundreds of Palestinians take part in protests along the border with Israel.
Palestinian health officials said that two of the victims were a pregnant woman and her 18-month old child.
