South Africa accuses Israel of genocide in Gaza

South Africa, in a dramatic move on Friday, hurled serious accusations of genocide against Israel in the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The nation urged the U.N. court to immediately cease the ongoing conflict in the strife-ridden Gaza Strip, contending that Israel is actively seeking to “destroy Palestinians in Gaza.”

Israeli Rebuttal: Swiftly dismissing the claim, Israel’s Foreign Ministry labeled it as “lacking a factual and a legal basis.” The response characterized the filing as a “despicable and contemptuous exploitation of the Court.” Israel consistently emphasizes that it is in conflict with Hamas, not Gaza’s civilian population.

Vocal Criticism: South Africa has emerged as one of the most vocal critics of Israel’s actions in the war against Hamas in Gaza. In a bold move in early November, the country recalled all its diplomats from Israel, citing concerns over the treatment of Palestinian civilians.
