Palestine thanks the world for support in ICJ hearing

Ramallah, Feb 27 (Prensa Latina) The Palestinian Government thanked on Tuesday the countries that presented arguments before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to denounce Israeli crimes in the occupied territories, especially in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates praised and expressed their gratitude for that position.

Those public hearings, which ended on Monday, were part of a case preceded by the recent complaint filed by South Africa for genocide in Gaza.

More than 50 countries and three international organizations addressed the meeting to express their reasons why the ICJ should issue an advisory opinion on Israel’s practices and policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Foreign Ministry highlighted the unprecedented participation of States and international groups in presenting their oral arguments to the Court. Most speakers sided with the Palestinian people and expressed their support for international law and their rejection of Israel’s violations of the United Nations Charter, it stressed.
