FM says Ireland may join South Africa in ICJ genocide case against Israel

Tehran, IRNA – Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin has emphasized an immediate end to the barbaric crimes committed by the Zionist regime in Gaza, saying that his country may join a case by South Africa at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the Israeli genocide.

In a memo published by Irish Independent daily, Martin wrote that “every day we see images on TV and social media, which show terrible deaths of civilians including children, as well as mass displacement and destruction, and insufficient access by the United Nations and international institutions to provide vital humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza”, IRNA reported on Saturday night.

The top Irish diplomat called those conditions unacceptable, saying that the Al-Aqsa Storm Operation “cannot justify the terrible impact of the Israeli military operation on civilians in Gaza.”

He also said that the case brought by South Africa at the ICJ is based on the 1948 International Genocide Convention and follows deep concerns around the world about what is happening in Gaza.

The Irish foreign minister stated that the case should be followed with utmost seriousness because "genocide is the biggest crime against humanity.”

The Hague-based ICJ began hearings on South Africa’s genocide case against the Israeli regime on January 11.
