Forty legal experts meet in New York to discuss ways to quash Palestinian Authority's anti-Israel motions in international courts • "The courtroom is the new battleground and you are Israel's legal Iron Dome," Israeli U.N. envoy Danny Danon tells jurists. ...
A similar conference, headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, was held in Israel in July, with the aim of providing Israeli diplomats with a solid public diplomacy message to counter anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions efforts worldwide, as well as the Palestinians' attempts to prompt the ICC to launch a war crimes investigation against Israel over 2014's Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip.
