Israel's defense minister said the demands to arrest Israeli ministers was an "attack" on the army

Israel's defense minister told soldiers that the international court's request for an arrest warrant against him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "is a direct attack on the Israeli military."

"Nobody in the world has the moral right to criticize the state of Israel," Yoav Galant said during a visit to troops in northern Israel.

The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, charged Netanyahu, Gallant and three Hamas leaders - Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Deif and Ismail Haniya - with war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Although Netanyahu and Gallant do not face imminent arrest, Monday's announcement was a symbolic blow that deepened Israel's isolation over the Gaza war.
