From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency via Haaretz:
A petition calling for the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visits Britain in September has reached more than 41,000 signatures and must receive a government response.

The online petition was uploaded on Aug. 7 to the United Kingdom Parliament’s official website. ...

“Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the U.K. for the massacre of over 2000 civilians in 2014,” the petition says, citing Netanyahu’s scheduled September visit.
