Nicaragua starts ICJ case against Germany over ‘facilitating’ genocide

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) stated on Friday that Nicaragua launched proceedings against Germany, accusing the European country of “facilitating” Israel’s alleged genocide against Palestinians by providing political, financial and military support to Israel and defunding the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

“Germany is facilitating the commission of genocide and, in any case, has failed in its obligation to do everything possible to prevent the commission of genocide,” Nicaragua claimed and asked the ICJ to implement provisional measures “as a matter of extreme urgency” due to Germany’s ““participation in the ongoing plausible genocide and serious breaches of international humanitarian law and other peremptory norms of general international law occurring in the Gaza Strip.”
