South Africa asked the court to issue an order to stop Israel’s attack on Rafah

South Africa has asked the International Criminal Court to order Israel to stop its attack on Rafah and withdraw from the area to ensure the survival of the Palestinian people.

On Thursday, May 16, the ambassador of South Africa in the Netherlands demanded an immediate and unconditional stop to the war in Gaza and the complete withdrawal of the Israeli army from the Gaza Strip. The two-day session of the International Criminal Court on the case presented by South Africa regarding Israel’s genocide in Gaza began yesterday.

South Africa has also asked the International Court of Justice to order Israel to allow aid officials unhindered access to Gaza.

According to the latest statistics provided by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, at least 35,272 people have been killed in Gaza since the beginning of the war. Israel has always rejected the claims made in the South African report and called them baseless.
