The decision originated from proceedings started in May 2013, when the Comoros, a State party to the ICC Statute, submitted a referral to the ICC Prosecutor in accordance with Articles 12(2)(a) and 14 ICC Statute requesting that the Prosecutor open an investigation into the 31 May 2010 interception of a humanitarian aid flotilla – bound for the Gaza Strip – by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), which resulted in the commission of international crimes. One of the vessels involved was registered in the Comoros.
