Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi announced on Jan. 4 his country’s support to South Africa for its case filed Dec. 29 at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel for genocide against the Palestinians. He further stated that Amman authorities will be preparing material to file with the Court to support South Africa’s case and will be coordinating with other Islamic and Arab nations on this.

Safadi spoke Jan. 4 to a parliamentary meeting on Jordan’s 2024 budget and noted that Jordan was one of the first nations to speak out about war crimes committed in Gaza by Israel. He was quoted as saying on Jan. 5 by The New Arab media outlet, “Israel’s blockade on humanitarian aid into Gaza implements the starvation policy that Israel is using against the Palestinians in clear violation of international law, which represents another war crime that Jordan has confronted with all its capabilities.
