ICJ delivers ruling on emergency measures requested by South Africa

Tehran, IRNA – The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has delivered its ruling on the emergency measures requested by South Africa in its genocide case against the Zionist regime over its war on the Gaza Strip.

During its Friday session, the ICJ expressed concern about the continued loss of lives of the people of Gaza, Al-Jezeera reported.

The president of this international court emphasized that the court cannot accept the Israeli regime's request to dismiss South Africa's complaint, it added.

"The court said, among others, that Israel must take steps to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza but stopped short of ordering a ceasefire," it noted.

"The judges have not ruled on the merits of the genocide allegations, which may take years to decide."

The military operation in the Gaza Strip led to the death of a large number of people and the forced migration of a number of others, ICJ said.

The Israeli attack resulted in the death of approximately 25,000 Palestinians and the injury of 60,000 others, it added.

More than 93% of the people of Gaza do not have access to food, ICJ said.

The Palestinian people are protected by the Convention on the Prevention of Genocide, the court stressed.

The Palestinian people have the right to be free from the crime of genocide, it added.
