ICJ: Israel must ‘immediately’ halt any military ops in Rafah

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled on Friday that Israel must “immediately” halt any military operations and any other actions in Rafah according to obligations under the Genocide Convention. The country was given one month to submit a report detailing all the measures it has taken to comply with the court’s latest order.

President of the ICJ Nawaf Salam underscored that the humanitarian situation in Rafah has “deteriorated further” since March when the court issued an order. He went on to say that the humanitarian situation in the area can now be categorized as “disastrous.”

“The court is not convinced that the evacuation efforts and the related measures that Israel affirms to have undertaken to enhance the security of civilians in the Gaza Strip and in particular those recently displaced from Rafah governorate are sufficient to alleviate the immense risk which the Palestinian population is exposed to as a result of the military offensive in Rafah,” he underlined further.
