Nicaragua starts legal action against Germany, Canada, UK, Netherlands over support for Israeli regime

Tehran, IRNA – Nicaragua has started legal proceedings against Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Canada to force them to stop supporting the Israeli regime and supplying weapons to it amid the ongoing war in Gaza.

In an official statement issued on Monday, the Nicaraguan government said it was starting proceedings to take the four countries to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for their complicity in the genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza by providing arms and weapons to the Israeli regime to carry out ins onslaught.

The statement revealed that Nicaragua had warned the governments of the four Western countries that they might be jointly complicit in the "flagrant and systemic violations" of the Convention on Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and international humanitarian law in the Gaza Strip. 

It urged the four states to immediately cease the supply of weapons, munitions, and technologies to the Israeli regime because the regime might use them to facilitate or commit violations of the Genocide Convention in Gaza.

Nicaragua underlined that the countries supporting the Israeli regime are obligated to cut off supplies to it "from the moment the state becomes aware of the existence of a serious risk of committing genocide."

The country elaborated that "the International Court of Justice issued, on January 26, a preliminary ruling in which it considered it reasonable that the Genocide Convention had been violated by Israel in Gaza."

More than 27,000 people have been killed in Gaza since early October when the Israeli regime launched its brutal aggression against the enclave.
