Lawyers representing relatives of those who died in an Israel raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May have urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the The Hague to pursue those responsible.
Ugur Sevgili, one of the lawyers, on Thursday presented to the office of the ICC prosecutor a dossier with evidence, containing videos, photos, autopsy findings and a UN report condemning the incident.
"We believe war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed," Sevgili told reporters in The Hague.
"The office of the prosecutor of the ICC has a duty to prosecute," Sevgili said, adding that "we want to bring an end to impunity. We want to bring justice to the people of Palestine".
On May 31, Israeli commandos boarded a flotilla of six humanitarian ships on their way to Gaza. Nine Turkish activists were killed on the lead ship Mavi Marmara, sparking international condemnation.
