Paris: Interpol said it is studying a request from Iran for the international police agency to place 25 Israeli officials on its most-wanted list over Israel’s offensive in Gaza.

France-based Interpol said it took the unusual step of confirming the request from a member country publicly, “as Iranian government officials have made their request public.”

On Tuesday, Interpol confirmed in a statement that it received an Iranian request Saturday for the issuance of 25 “red notices,” the highest-level alert Interpol issues.
