TEL AVIV — With Israel’s conflict in opposition to Hamas now in its eighth month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a rising crescendo of criticism at house and overseas over his administration of the battle — threatening his management and his nation’s place on the world stage.

The prosecutor for the International Criminal Court introduced Monday that he would search arrest warrants for Netanyahu and his protection minister on expenses of conflict crimes and crimes in opposition to humanity in Gaza. Within the prime minister’s personal cupboard, key ministers say he’s threatening the navy’s tactical achievements, and so they have set a deadline for him to map out a postwar plan. On the streets, protesters accuse him of prioritizing his political survival over the return of Israel’s hostages.
