Livni was expected in Brussels on 23 January for a conference at the European Parliament, but she has pulled out citing illness. Livni remains the subject of a complaint by victims filed in Brussels in 2010 for war crimes during “Operation Cast Lead” – Israel’s assault on Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009 that killed more than 1,400 Palestinians. Livni has evaded justice at least four times while traveling in Europe in recent years.
