Can South Africa’s genocide case before the International Court of Justice stop Israel? | The Israeli war on Gaza
South Africa’s ambassador to the United States speaks to Mark Lamont Hill about the implications of the case and the court’s ruling.
Last week, the International Court of Justice ordered provisional measures in the genocide case brought by South Africa against Israel. The ruling states that Israel must prevent and punish incitement to genocide and allow civilians to receive humanitarian aid.
This decision comes after nearly four months of war in Gaza, which killed more than 26,000 people and caused a major humanitarian crisis.
Although the interim ruling in the South African case is welcomed as a legal victory for the Palestinians and their supporters, many wonder what practical consequences this ruling may have on the war and on the people of Gaza. Will the case of South Africa help change the course of the conflict?
This week on sincereMark Lamont Hill speaks with South Africa’s ambassador to the United States, Ndumiso Ntshinga.
