Hamas unhappy over Arabs’ lack of action on Israeli genocide case at ICJ

Tehran, IRNA - The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has urged the Arab and Islamic countries to file a complaint against the Zionist regime at the Hague.

The Palestinian news agency Sama quoted Sami Abu Zuhri, a senior Hamas leader, as saying that the Arab and Islamic countries must understand the situation in Gaza, because their silence means giving the Zionist regime the greenlight to destroy the enclave.

We are dissatisfied with the fact that no petition was filed by the Arab and Islamic countries in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the crimes and genocide of the Zionist regime in Gaza, as well as in support of South Africa's complaint in this regard, Abu Zuhri added.

Earlier on December 30, 2023, South Africa filed a genocide case against the Zionist regime at the ICJ over the occupying entity’s relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

The filing asked the ICJ to issue an urgent order declaring that the regime was in breach of its obligations under the 1948 Genocide Convention over its brutal war on Gaza.

It also asked the court to issue short-term measures ordering the Zionist regime to stop its war on Gaza, which it said were “necessary in this case to protect against further, severe and irreparable harm to the rights of the Palestinian people.”

The Tel Aviv regime launched the bloody war on Gaza on October 7, 2023, after Hamas carried out a surprise operation into the occupied territories to respond to the regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinians.

South Africa has been a vocal critic of the Israeli war on Gaza. Last month, the country’s lawmakers voted in favor of closing down the Israeli embassy in Pretoria and suspending all diplomatic ties with the regime.
