The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is currently hearing a significant case brought by South Africa against Israel, alleging violations of the Genocide Convention in relation to the treatment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Initiated on December 29, 2023, the hearings took place on January 11-12, 2024, at the Peace Palace in The Hague. South Africa’s application requests provisional measures to prevent further harm to Palestinians and to ensure Israel’s compliance with the Genocide Convention. Israel has strongly denied these allegations, terming them as “blood libel.” This case is notable not just for its legal implications but also for the potential political and diplomatic repercussions it may have on international relations, especially considering the divided global response to the allegations.
