Israel Hamas War South Africa International Court Israel Gaza Benjamin Netanyahu

As Israel continues its offensive into Gaza, killing more than 23,000 Palestinians since the October 7 surprise attacks by Hamas, the International Court of Justice in The Hague in December ruled against Hamas in a case brought by South Africa against Israel. Hearing will be held on Thursday and Friday claiming war. Terrorists in Gaza violate the 1948 Genocide Convention.

The hearing will focus specifically on South Africa’s request for emergency measures, which seeks to direct Israel to suspend its military actions in Gaza while the court hears the merits of the case, a process that could take years. .

Ahead of the hearing, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the first time rejected calls by some right-wing ministers to permanently annex Gaza, as Israel prepared to defend itself at the International Court of Justice against allegations of genocide in the Palestinian territory .

“Israel is not fighting the Palestinian population, but Hamas terrorists, and we are doing so in full compliance with international law,” Netanyahu said.

Meanwhile, Israeli government spokesman Ilon Levy said Tel Aviv would appear in court on Thursday, calling the case filed by South Africa a “blood libel”. “Tomorrow, the State of Israel will appear before the International Court of Justice to vindicate South Africa’s absurd blood libel because Pretoria gives political and legal protection to the rapist Hamas regime,” Levy said on Wednesday, Reuters reports.

Late Wednesday night, Colombia and Brazil expressed their support for South Africa.

Jordan and Egypt also warned on Wednesday against Israel’s recapture of the Gaza Strip and appealed for displaced civilians to be allowed to return to their homes as Jordan’s King Abdullah and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met .
