South Africa is on a roll for Palestine

L'Afrique du Sud vent debout pour la Palestine

South Africa returns to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to request a new order against Israel, which it accuses of violating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide since last December.

Pretoria calls on the ICJ to order Israel to withdraw from the town of Rafah, stressing the importance of ensuring unhindered UN access to Gaza. South Africa expresses its concern about the situation in Rafah, where the Israeli army is carrying out its operations, and insists on the need for immediate action to protect Palestinian civilians.

By taking control of the border crossing with Egypt and the Kerem Shalom crossing, Israel exercises complete control over the flow of goods and people into and out of Gaza. This situation concerns South Africa, which highlights the impact on the Palestinian population, particularly in Rafah, the only area of ​​the territory still preserved from destruction.

South Africa is also demanding that international journalists and investigators be able to access the Palestinian enclave, a request Israel has opposed since the war began last October. This request highlights the importance of transparency and access to information in conflict resolution.

South Africa's request to the ICJ highlights growing concerns about the humanitarian situation in Gaza and highlights the need for international action to protect the rights of Palestinian civilians.
