In the first day of proceedings in South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice, South Africa has accused Israel of committing “genocidal acts” against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. South Africa listed eight Israeli actions against Palestinians in Gaza that it asserted are genocidal in nature in an 84-page document filed in late December, 2023. Israeli President Isaac Herzog condemned South Africa’s allegations and denied the charges, calling them “atrocious and preposterous.” The court will assess whether South Africa’s case is strong enough to implement measures to protect Palestinians from “further, severe and irreparable harm,” such as an order for Israel to halt all military attacks that violate the convention, including strikes that kill or harm Palestinians, and to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid into Gaza.
