"Governments of 180 countries have received the information necessary for identifying the suspects," he said.
In a Monday statement, Iran's judiciary said that it has asked Interpol to issue an international Red Notice security alert for the 15 Israeli officials who were involved in the 23-day Israeli offensive on Gaza.
The statement added that the judiciary was also looking into complaints made against 100 other Israelis, with top military and government posts.
"Based on our investigation and according to article 2 of the Interpol charter, we asked Interpol to arrest these suspects."
Many international NGOs and human rights organizations, Palestinians wounded in the Gaza onslaught, more than 5,700 Iranian lawyers and attorneys in the Iranian Bar Association along with a large number of medics were also among those who filed complaints against Tel Aviv, Mortazavi added

Iran, Syria vow to bring Israel to justice
Iran and Syria vow to support the rights of Palestinian people by bringing Israeli leaders to justice for their recent war crimes in Gaza.
Meanwhile, Turkey's Mazlum-Der rights group launched an investigation into Israeli crimes against humanity and genocide during the 23-day deadly offensive in the Gaza Strip.
The group filed a complaint which asked that Turkey be given the right to try 19 Israeli warlords including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, President Shimon Peres, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defense Minister Ehud Barak of committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Gaza.
Several international rights groups, including Amnesty and Human Rights Watch, have accused Israel of using banned weapons against the densely-populated coastal enclave of 1.6 million.
Iran is also going to host an international conference in support of Palestine on March 4-5 2009 in Tehran. Significant figures of the international community including the Arab League, Organization of Islamic Conference as well as renowned international lawyers have been invited to the conference.
Please note that if you live in England, remember in January THIS was said.
the UN General Assembly is expected to discuss whether to seek advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice about filing a complaint against Israel, The Guardian reported on Wednesday.
According to the British daily, a Foreign Office source has confirmed reports that the UK government, under pressure from prominent law experts, may consider supporting calls for a reference to the ICJ.
"It's definitely on the table… We have already called for an investigation and are looking at all evidence and allegations,” the source told The Guardian.
The world's leading international lawyers have sent an open letter to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, calling for an end to Israel's human right violations in the Gaza Strip.
"The United Kingdom government ... has a duty under international law to exert its influence to stop violations of international humanitarian law in the current conflict," reads the letter. http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=82223§ionid=351021701
So please put pressure on your MP’s and Brown to carry though with this. Israel must finally be held accountable for it’s crimes against humanity and the world.
