“International Justice” ruled today on South Africa’s request for a ceasefire against the occupation


The world – Occupied Palestine

Pretoria wants the court to order the occupying entity to “immediately” stop all military operations in Gaza, including in the town of Rafah, where it began its ground operations on May 7, despite community opposition international.

South Africa had asked the court to urge the occupying entity to immediately withdraw its forces and end its military attack in the Rafah region, and to immediately take all effective measures to ensure unhindered access to humanitarian aid to Gaza.

He also asked the court to issue an order to the occupier to allow United Nations officials and organizations providing humanitarian aid, as well as journalists and investigators, to enter the Gaza Strip without hindrance.

She added that the occupying entity continues to ignore and violate orders previously issued by the court.

In January, the International Court of Justice called on the occupation government to avoid any acts that could lead to genocide and to facilitate the arrival of humanitarian aid in Gaza.

A few weeks later, South Africa requested further measures, highlighting the occupation government’s announcement of its intention to launch an attack on Rafah, but the court rejected the request.

In early March, South Africa again asked the court to impose new emergency measures on the occupying government. The same month, the court ordered the occupying entity to ensure the arrival of “emergency humanitarian aid” to Gaza in the face of “a famine that has begun to spread” in the besieged strip.

Recently, countries such as Libya, Egypt and Turkey announced their intention to officially intervene in support of South Africa’s trial in the “genocide” case filed against the occupying entity in the International Court of Justice due to its continued aggression against the Gaza Strip.

The sessions of the International Court of Justice are part of an ongoing case in which the occupation government is also accused of committing acts of genocide against the Palestinian people.

It should be noted that the judgments and orders of the International Court of Justice are binding and final. Even if the Court has no way of enforcing its decisions, issuing an order against a country can damage its reputation internationally and set a legal precedent.

On the 6th of this month, the occupying forces launched a military operation in the city of Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, and called citizens and displaced people to the eastern areas of the city (neighborhoods of Al-Shoka, from Al-Salam, Al-Jeneina and Tabba Zaraa) to go to the town of Khan Yunis, in the south of the Gaza Strip.

The occupation government has forced more than 900,000 citizens to forcibly move from the town of Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, to other areas over the past two weeks, according to the Relief and of Works for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). In eastern Rafah, the military occupation operation expanded to other areas of the city, with intense artillery and missile bombardments continuing, on land, in the air and at sea .

On May 5, occupying forces completely closed the Kerem Shalom crossing, southeast of Rafah city, and prevented the entry of humanitarian and medical aid. On the 7th of the same month, the occupying forces occupied the Palestinian side of the border. The Rafah crossing and the halt to the flow of aid to the Gaza Strip remain closed to this day.

Since the beginning of the aggression against the Gaza Strip, the city of Rafah has experienced a significant movement of citizens from various cities in the Strip, the number of citizens having reached approximately 1.5 million, and with the start of the military operation in In Rafah, 600,000 of them were forced to flee again to other regions.
