South Africa Accuses Israel of Genocide in Case at UN Court | VOA |

South Africa launched a case Friday at the United Nations' top court accusing Israel of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza and asking the court to order Israel to halt its attacks.

It also asks the Hague-based court to issue an interim order for Israel to immediately suspend its military operations in Gaza.

South Africa can bring the case under the Genocide Convention because both it and Israel are signatories to the convention.

Reference listed in application ...

2) Raphaël Lemkin, Axis Rule in Occupied Europe: Laws of Occupation, Analysis of Government, Proposals for Redress (1944), Chapter IX.

Long overdue ⁉️

South Africa has filed an application instituting proceedings against Israel before the International Court of Justice. The application concerns alleged violations by Israel of its obligations under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
