South African top Diplomat to attend ICJ Announcement on Gaza 


Sudan Events – Sumaya Al Sayed 

South Africa’s foreign minister has traveled to The Hague to represent the country as the International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivers its order on Friday in a genocide case against Israel.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday that Naledi Pandor is leading a South African delegation to hear the ICJ provisional measures application outcome.

On Dec. 29, South Africa filed a lawsuit with the ICJ requesting an injunction against Israel on the grounds that Israel’s attacks on Gaza violate the UN Genocide Convention.

South Africa is requesting that the ICJ grant interim injunctions, including that Israel immediately cease its military operations in Gaza, take reasonable measures to prevent the genocide of Palestinians, ensure that the displaced people return to their homes and have access to humanitarian assistance, including adequate food, water, fuel, medical among others.

It also wants the court to take necessary steps to punish those involved in the genocide.

The ICJ listened to submissions from South Africa and Israel on Jan. 11-12 and will deliver its order on Friday.
