George Clooney’s wife, Amal Clooney, suffered significant backlash after she helped convince the International Criminal Court to launch arrest warrants against both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the leaders of Hamas, RadarOnline.com can report.

In a surprising development to come after the ICC issued arrest warrants against Netanyahu and several Hamas leaders on Monday morning, it was revealed that Amal was directly involved in the decision.

George and Amal Clooney are said to be "leading separate leaves," with the power couple's demanding jobs and constant travel forcing them apart as their 10th anniversary nears.

According to the human rights lawyer and Clooney Foundation for Justice founder, she was asked by the ICC to join a committee made up of other international legal experts. The panel was reportedly tasked with evaluating evidence of suspected war crimes committed by both Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The panel ultimately concluded that Netanyahu and Israel Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, as well as several Hamas leaders, were likely guilty of suspected crimes against humanity in the Middle East.

“We unanimously conclude that there are reasonable grounds to believe that Hamas leaders Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Deif, and Ismail Haniyeh have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity, including hostage-taking, murder, and crimes of sexual violence,” the actor's wife announced on Monday morning.

Amal and the ICC’s panel also determined that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israeli Defense Minister Gallant were also likely guilty of crimes against humanity that included “starvation as a method of warfare,” “murder,” “persecution,” and “extermination.”

Amal and the ICC's panel found that there was enough evidence to charge Netanyahu with crimes against humanity in Gaza.

“As a human rights lawyer, I will never accept that one child’s life has less value than another’s,” Amal wrote.

“I do not accept that any conflict should be beyond the reach of the law, nor that any perpetrator should be above the law,” she continued.

“So I support the historic step that the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has taken to bring justice to victims of atrocities in Israel and Palestine.”

Meanwhile, George’s wife suffered immediate backlash for her and the ICC panel’s decision to hold Netanyahu accountable for the “atrocities” unfolding between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
