The world – Europe

During a talk with citizens on the occasion of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the German Constitution, Habeck said on Saturday: “Of course, Israel must respect international law. The famine, the suffering of the Palestinian population and the attacks in the Gaza Strip are not in accordance with international law, as we are now also seeing from a judicial perspective.”

Habeck added: “That means, in effect, that Israel crossed the border there, and it should not do that. »

At the same time, Habeck stressed that Hamas could end the war immediately if it laid down its arms.

Last Monday, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, announced that he had requested the issuance of arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Defense Minister, Yoav Galant, to accuse them of having committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Gaza Strip, starting October 8, a day after… Hamas militants launched an attack on Israel.

A statement released by Khan’s office said the charges included “starving civilians as a method of warfare” and “deliberately launching attacks against civilians.”

In a further development, the International Court of Justice, the United Nations’ highest court, yesterday Friday ordered Israel to “immediately” cease its military attack on the town of Rafah, located south of Gaza City, saying that the The humanitarian situation in the Palestinian territories is “catastrophic”. The decision, which was read aloud by Judge Nawaf Salam at the headquarters of the International Court of Justice in The Hague, responds to an urgent request submitted by South Africa.

Today, Habeck and German Chancellor Schulz confirmed the German government’s warnings of a large-scale military attack in the city of Rafah.

“What we are saying is that the war must be fought in accordance with the rules of international law,” Schulz said during a dialogue with citizens in his constituency in Potsdam. He added: “This is why we have always been clear in saying: we cannot imagine launching an attack in Rafah without causing terrible and irresponsible loss of life. »

In turn, Habeck emphasized that the German government had always stated that “Israel should not carry out this attack, at least not in the way it treated the Gaza Strip before, that is, by bombing refugee camps, etc. “.

It should be noted that Habeck, who belongs to the Green party, also serves as Minister of Economy and Climate Protection in the German government in Berlin.
