ICJ orders Israel to halt Rafah offensive

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Friday ruled that Israel must halt its offensive in Gaza’s Rafah, following a plea from South Africa. Nawaf Salam, the head of the International Court of Justice, said, “Israel must take effective measures to ensure the unimpeded access to the Gaza Strip of any commission of inquiry, fact-finding mission or investigative body mandated by the competent organs of the UN to investigate allegations of genocide.”

Salam also said that the court is not convinced that Israel’s evacuation efforts in Gaza are sufficient.

Salam added that the provisional measures taken by Israel after the ICJ’s previous verdict on Gaza do not fully address the consequences from the changed situation.
