Hamas urges ICJ to act independently on Zionist regime’s genocide case

Tehran, IRNA – The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has called on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) not to be influenced by US pressure in dealing with a case on the crimes committed by the Zionist regime in Gaza.

The ICJ is to begin a hearing on Thursday over a genocide case against the Israeli regime brought by South Africa over the attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Oral proceedings are set to take place on Thursday and Friday in the Netherlands.

The case says the Israeli regime has committed “genocidal acts” against Palestinians in Gaza.

In the application to the court, South Africa called Israeli moves in Gaza since October 7, 2023, “genocidal in character because they are intended to bring about the destruction of a substantial part of the Palestinian national, racial and ethnical group.”

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.”
