According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu told Greenblatt “the actions of the Palestinian leadership in recent days severely impairs the chances of achieving peace and added that the Palestinian diplomatic warfare would not go unanswered.”

The Palestinians were accepted Sept. 27 into Interpol, an international police organization, despite Israeli attempts to thwart the move.

Interpol operates as a liaison between police agencies throughout the world and does not have agents with policing powers.

Last week, Palestinian human rights lawyers and activists sent a 700-page dossier to the International Criminal Court accusing Israel of crimes, including apartheid and persecution, as part of an effort to provide evidence for a preliminary probe opened by the court in 2015 against Israel.
