Al Jazeera Inside Story: What will war crimes inquiry in Palestinian territories achieve?

Toby Cadman joins panel discussion on the statement of the ICC Prosecutor into the Situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

After nearly five years of preliminary examinations, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has announced there is enough evidence to investigate alleged war crimes by Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, occupied East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

Palestine referred the case shortly after joining the court in 2015.

The ICC's chief prosecutor is asking judges to first establish what territory the investigation would cover.

Palestinian leaders welcomed the announcement, but Israel and the United States criticised the decision as political.

So will there be a full investigation? And what can it achieve?
