Breadcrumb

The International Court of Justice has ruled in favour of South Africa's request for emergency measures in its genocide case against Israel.

While the 17 judges of the ICJ did not rule on the allegations of genocide, a majority decision of the court did order Israel, among others, to take steps to prevent acts of genocide in its war in Gaza.

The court, however, did not order a ceasefire but requested that Israel allow humanitarian aid into Gaza.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is expected to rule this Friday on whether it will grant emergency measures requested by South Africa to stop the genocidal war in Gaza.

The ICJ heard the case by South Africa against Israel and requested provisional measures to stop the carnage in Palestine.

According to a statement from the ICJ, a public sitting will take place at midday at the Peace Palace in the Hague, during which the President of the Court, Judge Joan Donoghue, will read the Court's Order.

ICJ can order Israel to comply with provisional measures in alleged Gaza genocide

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) can order Israel to comply with provisional measures within weeks with regard to its alleged genocide in Gaza. 

However, Namibian legal experts say that for Israel to comply, more countries need to step up, pledge their support for Palestine, and stand with South Africa. 

While the determination on the merits of South Africa's application before the International Court of Justice against Israel could take years, the court can order Israel to comply with provisional measures.

Israel has shifted the entire blame for its alleged genocidal acts in Gaza on Hamas during its submissions to the International Criminal Court in The Hague today.

South Africa has reported Israel to the International Court of Justice to stop its war in Gaza against the Palestinian people, who have been killed and uprooted from their homes.

It claims that it is not committing any act of genocide in Gaza, saying it is only protecting the lives of its people and the Palestinians against atrocities committed by Hamas.
