Four Palestinian boys were killed last summer in the Israeli advance on Gaza. Their relatives are hoping justice will come from the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
The move comes amid increased tensions with Israel in the aftermath of the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and the recent bloodshed in Gaza. Israel has questioned the legal validity of the Palestinian request to the ICC.
A blast in Gaza has killed two people and injured one. The explosion comes hours after a truce between Israel and Palestinian militants was announced.
Gaza's armed groups have reportedly agreed a truce with Israel following a surge in cross-border violence. An Israeli military spokesman said its actions would be decided by what happens on the ground.
Israel's top court has upheld the use of lethal force against Palestinians amid weeks of protests on the Gaza border. The court said the protests took place in the context of Israel's long-running conflict with Hamas.
