Nitsana Darshan Leitner of the Israel Law Center spoke to INR's Barnea Selavan at the Jerusalem Conference on pursuing terrorists in court and defending Israeli leaders against Gaza war crimes accusations.

Leitner said that "letting the world know that terrorist organizations like Hamas and states that sponsor terrorism including the Palestinian autonomy, can be sued for the damages they inflict... causes the world to put restraints on supporting terrorism."

"Furthermore, in several arenas, the Israel Law Center has been successful in having laws changed or reviewed so that Israeli soldiers and officials are not suddenly arrested and held responsible for purported war crimes in Gaza."
