Mexico Intervenes ICJ Genocide Case Against Israel in Wake of Rafah Massacres

Mexico has now intervened by officially invoking Article 63 of the ICJ statute and submitted a “declaration of intervention in the case concerning the Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip.”

Mexico has revealed that it “seeks to intervene, in order to provide its view on the potential construction of the content of the provisions of the Convention relevant to this case.”

However, it’s unclear if the ICJ will accept Mexico’s application for intervention.

Mexico is a signatory to the genocide convention and reserves the right to intervene in cases in which the interpretation of the treaty is discussed. 

Clashes between police and protesters broke out on Tuesday, May 29 outside the Israeli embassy in Mexico when pro-Palestinians protested against the Israeli regime’s horrendous military offensive in Rafah. 

Police officers responded violently by deploying tear gas and throwing back stones hurled at them by the protestors. 

This demonstration took place in response to Israeli strikes which set ablaze a displacement camp outside Rafah, burning them alive, and killing over 50 civilians.
