South Africa Seeks to Drag Israel to the ICJ Again for Causing Starvation in Gaza and Ignoring Resolution

South Africa has once again responded to the urgent humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza caused by the “Israeli Regime’s ongoing onslaught, by filing an “urgent request for additional provisional measures and the modification of the ICJ’s interim rulings in the genocide case against Israel.”

South Africa stated that this action was taken following the “new facts and changes in the situation in Gaza, particularly the situation of widespread starvation.”

According to the request, the crimes against humanity committed by the occupation entity against the Palestinians are breaching the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and violations of the provisional measures issued by the ICJ in January.

The Israeli regime has been accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice and an interim ruling in January demanded Tel Aviv to halt its genocidal acts and strive to ensure that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza. The Israeli regime has fully violated the order. 

The Israeli regime has killed more than 30,700 Palestinians since Oct. 7, 2023, and wounded more than 70,200 Palestinians and destroyed over 60% of Gaza’s infrastructure. 

The occupation entity has also imposed an inhumane blockade in Gaza, pushing the entire population towards a man-made hunger crisis, with residents of North Gaza on the verge of starvation. 85% of Gaza’s population are now internally displaced with no access to enough food, clean water and medicine.
