ICJ orders Zionist entity to end Rafah operation

WORLD, May 24 (YPA) – The International Court of Justice (ICJ), ruled on Friday that Israel must immediately halt its military offensive in Rafah and open crossing to aid.

ICJ President Nawaf Salam said the humanitarian situation in Gaza was now “disastrous” and said earlier measures issued were insufficient.

“Israel must immediately halt its military offensive and any other action in the Rafah governorate which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part,” he said, reading out the judgement to the court.

The ground attack on Rafah continues and has led to the displacement of over 800,000 people since it began on May 7.

South Africa urged the ICI to enforce its jurisdiction and impose emergency measures to halt the war.
