Israel Faces New Measures from International Court as Crisis in Gaza Escalates

South Africa accused Israel of genocide in Gaza following Hamas-led attacks in southern Israel, leading to almost 1,200 deaths and over 240 people being taken hostage. This prompted the World Court to issue a new order in response to a recent request from South Africa. The ICJ issued provisional measures stating that Israel must ensure aid deliveries to Palestinians in Gaza given the worsening conditions they face.

The aid includes basic services and humanitarian assistance such as food, water, electricity, fuel, shelter, clothing, hygiene, sanitation requirements, medical supplies, and medical care. Israel must work in full cooperation with the United Nations to provide this aid promptly. The order also requires Israel to open more land crossings and maintain their operation for as long as necessary in order to facilitate aid delivery.

Furthermore, the ICJ emphasized that Israel must ensure that its military does not violate the rights of Palestinians in Gaza as a protected group under the Genocide Convention. This includes preventing the delivery of urgently needed humanitarian assistance. The ICJ reiterated that all Member States should abide by decisions made by it as it operates independently. The ICJ was established as the principal judicial organ of the UN under the UN Charter.
