New York Times: Verdict "International Justice" Immediately stopping the attack on Rafah is another blow to Israel

The New York Times newspaper considered that the International Court of Justice’s order on Friday for Israel to immediately stop its ground attack on Rafah deals another blow to Israel, at a time when the country is facing increasing international isolation. The American newspaper, commenting on the decision of the International Court of Justice, stated that while the court has no means to implement its orders, the ruling increases the condemnation that Israel faced due to the war, in which more than 35,000 people were killed in Gaza, according to health authorities in the Strip. A legal team from South Africa urged the UN Supreme Court last week to place further restrictions on the Israeli incursion there, saying it was “the final step in the destruction of Gaza and its people.” The South African team also warned that Israel’s control of the two main border crossings in southern Gaza, Rafah and Kerem Shalom, prevents the entry of sufficient aid, plunging Gaza into “unprecedented levels of humanitarian needs.” Israeli Deputy Prosecutor for International Law, Gilad Naoum, and other Israeli lawyers rejected these charges in court last Friday, describing the South African case as a “reversal of reality.” He described the Israeli incursion into Rafah as a “limited and local” operation. Preceded by evacuations. While the Israeli legal advisor, Tamar Kaplan Turgeman, claimed that hundreds of trucks loaded with humanitarian supplies entered the Kerem Shalom crossing last week. The American newspaper pointed out that the United Nations court has no means to implement its orders, but the case brought against Israel increased the condemnation that Israel faced because of the war. The International Court of Justice’s decision comes after the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, also based in The Hague, said last Monday that he had requested the issuance of arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Defense Minister Yoav Galant, along with three senior Hamas leaders, on charges of committing crimes. Against humanity and war crimes. The request must be approved by the court’s judges, but it increases Israel’s isolation on the global stage.
