South Africa asks ICJ more measures against Israel

CAPE TOWN, 7 March: South Africa demanded from the International Court of Justice that there is a need to take more actions against Israel due to the Gaza war.

South Africa wrote in its application that the Palestinian people are suffering from famine and the court should compel all parties to a ceasefire and the release of prisoners.

The people of Gaza cannot wait any longer, the South African president said on Wednesday, as a million of Gazans are now at risk of a massive famine.

The Court should now extend the rights it had established under the Genocide Convention to the people of Gaza, he said.

South Africa also demanded that the court should put pressure on Israel to allow all forms of humanitarian aid to reach the people of Gaza in order to prevent famine.

The ICJ, also known as the World Court, should hold more hearings on the Gaza situation, he stressed. Due to the war in Gaza, the United Nations has shown alarming signs that if this issue is not resolved immediately, Gaza will be completely devastated by famine.
