World Court demands Israel to stop Gaza famine; Hamas calls for ceasefire

The International Court of Justice has ruled that Israel must take immediate action to prevent famine in Gaza. The court ordered Israel to ensure that basic food supplies reach the Palestinians living in the territory. This ruling came after aid agencies reported that only a small fraction of the needed supplies were getting into Gaza.

The judges at the court emphasized that famine was becoming a real threat in Gaza and suggested increasing the capacity and number of land crossing points as a way to address the issue. Israel was given a month to submit a report detailing how they would comply with the ruling.

South Africa had brought this case before the court, accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza. Hamas officials felt that the ruling did not go far enough and called for an immediate ceasefire to end the suffering of their people. The UN Security Council recently voted for an immediate ceasefire and the release of all hostages, with the United States abstaining from the vote.

Israel claimed to be making efforts to improve access for humanitarian aid but were criticized for not doing enough. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called it “a moral outrage” when he criticized the number of trucks being blocked at the border by Israeli authorities. There was no immediate response from Israel’s foreign ministry regarding this ruling, but aid agencies continue to report insufficient supplies reaching Gaza residents.
