ICJ Orders Israel Take Measures To Prevent Acts Of Genocide In Gaza

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has delivered its ruling on the emergency measures requested by South Africa in its genocide case against Israel over its war on the Gaza Strip.

The court said, among others, that Israel must take steps to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza but stopped short of ordering a ceasefire.

The judges have not ruled on the merits of the genocide allegations, which may take years to decide.

The Court also gave Israel one month from the date of their ruling, to provide the court with evidence of compliance.

Since October 7, Israel’s military campaign has killed at least 26,083 people and wounded 64,487 others, according to officials in Gaza. Thousands more are missing under the rubble, most of them presumed dead.
