South Africa Launches Genocide Case Against Israel at UN’s Top Court

The Israeli Regime has dismissed South Africa’s launch of a genocidal case against their relentless bombing in the Gaza strip at the International Court of Justice, despite mounting evidence of war crimes committed by the Occupation Entity. 

The regime called the case a “groundless blood libel lacking legal merit” and claimed that its army was adhering to international law.

“South Africa is collaborating with a terrorist group that calls for Israel’s destruction,” a statement from the Israeli regime’s Foreign Ministry said. 

South Africa reportedly submitted a motion to the International Court of Justice which states that Israeli forces are violating the UN’s Genocide Convention. 

The Submission states that, “The Israeli occupation forces [IOF] operations are genocidal in character, as they are committed with the requisite specific intent to destroy Palestinians in Gaza as a part of the broader Palestinian national, racial, and ethnic group.’’ 

“The conduct of Israel… in relation to Palestinians in Gaza, is in violation of its obligations under the Genocide Convention,” the application adds. 

The Israeli regime has killed more than 21,500 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since Oct.7 and has been heavily restricting the flow of fuel and humanitarian aid into the besieged Strip.
