The study tackles the mechanism of managing the Palestinian case before the permanently convened International Criminal Court (ICC)، starting with the issue of convening the criminal jurisdiction of the Court over the Palestinian Territory، and ending with the tools of the Israeli authorities to obstruct and hinder the investigation before the ICC. The thesis aims to shed light on the war crimes and crimes against humanity that have been and are being committed on the Palestinian Territory by the Israeli authorities and their citizens. As well as to focus on the referral submitted by the State of Palestine to the Public Prosecution of the International Criminal Court. Hence، the importance of the thesis emerges in that it will provide a legal، practical، and reference framework for all activities that seek to prosecute and hold the perpetrators accountable for the most heinous crimes against humanity. The problem of the study lies in the following question: What is the role of the Palestinian authorities authorized to follow up the Palestinian file before the International Criminal? Branching out from this problem a set of questions that the study will try to answer. In order to answer that، the researcher followed the deductive، descriptive، and analytical approach to the Palestinian-Israeli reality and the International Criminal Court. The thesis concluded with a set of results، the most important of which is، Palestine submitted a request to "refer the situation in Palestine" to the International Criminal Court، and this is the result of the tireless efforts of the Supreme National Committee concerned with follow-up with the International Criminal Court. Subsequently، the Public Prosecution of the International Criminal Court، after its preliminary study on the “situation in Palestine،” will open an investigation into three crimes within its “qualitative” jurisdiction، namely، The Israeli settler colonial policy and its related issues، the Israeli aggression in the year: (2014) on the Gaza Strip، and the targeting of Palestinian civilians in the “Great March of Return” since the year: (2018). Accordingly، the researcher recommended the necessity of urging the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates to enhance the performance of the Supreme National Committee concerned with following up with the International Criminal Court، by preparing a special operational plan for it، and providing the necessary resources to carry out the tasks assigned to it. The researcher also recommended the need for good preparation of victims and witnesses، which gives us the opportunity to provide decisive "statements" that are comprehensive، clear، accurate، and acceptable، which enhances the opportunity to link the accused with what is assigned to them.
