Thirteen Countries Join South Africa’s Case against Israeli Genocide in Gaza

As of June 28, thirteen nations have either announced or filed a “declaration of intervention” with the International Court of Justice, joining with its lawsuit termed South Africa v. Israel, ("Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip"), and Spain is the most recent to file.

The Middle East Monitor reported Spain’s filing on June 29:

“This intervention is motivated by our responsibility as a state party to the Genocide Convention and our firm commitment to international law,” said the Spanish Foreign Ministry. “We seek to contribute to bringing peace back to Gaza and the Middle East.… We urge the ICJ to address the obligation to prevent genocide and ensure compliance with the Court’s binding precautionary measures.”
