ICJ Orders Israel to Cease Gaza Aggression; Pakistan Applauds Decision

In a groundbreaking decision, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has issued provisional measures compelling Israel to cease its military aggression in Gaza, following claims of genocide filed by South Africa. Pakistan warmly welcomes the ruling, emphasizing its significance in the pursuit of justice for the Palestinian people and holding Israel accountable for its actions.

The ICJ has declared its prima facie jurisdiction in the case against Israel and deemed South Africa’s claims of genocide as “plausible.” The court has urgently directed Israel to undertake measures preventing acts prohibited by the Genocide Convention, including killing, causing harm, and imposing conditions leading to the destruction of the Palestinian group.

In response to the ICJ’s decision, Pakistan urges an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to alleviate the suffering of the people in Gaza. The court has also mandated Israel to take prompt and effective action to provide essential services and humanitarian assistance to address the adverse conditions faced by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

The ruling comes in the wake of Israel’s military actions and criminal behavior against the Palestinian people since October 7, 2023. Pakistan reaffirms its steadfast support for the Palestinian people, emphasizing the need for the full and effective implementation of the ICJ’s decision to uphold basic human rights, dignity, and identity as per the UN Charter, relevant resolutions, and international law.

As a show of solidarity, Pakistan stands by South Africa’s application before the ICJ, advocating for justice under the 1948 Genocide Convention. The ICJ’s announcement of provisional measures marks a significant milestone in the global pursuit of accountability and justice for the Palestinian people.
