How Did Israel Respond To South Africa’s Plea At ICJ?

Conflict Law Centre's lawyer Ayesha Malik explains the two-day Courtside chats on how Israel responded to South Africa's plea at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

South Africa requested an urgent order to stop Israel's military operations in Rafah, citing concerns of genocide and humanitarian crisis, while Israel argued its offensive is crucial to defeating Hamas and denied allegations of genocide.

The ICJ held public hearings, with South Africa presenting its case and Israel responding, and will consider the arguments to deliver a decision on provisional measures to halt Israel's operations and ensure humanitarian access.
