Turkey To Join South Africa’s Genocide Case Against Israel At World Court, Minister Says

Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan says Turkey would join in South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Speaking in a joint press conference with Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi in Ankara on Wednesday, the Turkish Minister said upon completion of some legal formalities, Turkey will submit the declaration of official intervention before the ICJ.

He added that Turkey will continue to support the Palestinian people in all circumstances.

The ICJ ordered Israel, in January, to refrain from any acts that could fall under the Genocide Convention and to ensure its troops commit no genocidal acts against Palestinians, after South Africa accused Israel of state-led genocide in Gaza, an accusation which Israel described as baseless. A final ruling in South Africa’s ICJ case in The Hague could take years.
