South Africa Files ICJ Case Accusing Israel Of ‘Genocidal Acts’1 min read
South Africa has filed a case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) alleging that Israel is engaging in “genocidal acts” in Gaza.
The UN court confirmed the proceedings concerning alleged violations of Israel’s obligations under the Genocide Convention.
Israel has strongly rejected the allegation, calling it “baseless”.
“Israel rejects with disgust the blood libel spread by South Africa”, the foreign ministry said.
Following its application to the ICJ, South Africa’s presidency said in a statement that the country was obliged “to prevent genocide from occurring”.
