ICJ Issues order for Israel to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has delivered its ruling on the emergency measures requested by South Africa in its genocide case against Israel over its war on the Gaza Strip.
The court said, among others, that Israel must take all measures within its power to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza. With the reading ongoing, the court said Israel must ensure its forces do not commit genocide and take measures to improve the humanitarian situation. But the court but stopped short of ordering a ceasefire.
Israel must report to the court within a month on what it's doing to uphold the order.
The judges have not ruled on the merits of the genocide allegations, which may take years to decide.
Since October 7, Israel’s military campaign has killed at least 26,083 people and wounded 64,487 others, according to officials in Gaza. Thousands more are missing under the rubble, most of them presumed dead.
