US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday denounced as “shameful” a bid by the International Criminal Court prosecutor to arrest Israeli leaders, rejecting the court’s authority and saying the move put ceasefire efforts at risk.

“We reject the prosecutor’s equivalence of Israel with Hamas. It is shameful,” Blinken said in a statement over the bids to arrest Israeli leaders including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as Hamas chiefs.
