Israel Ordered by World Court to Stop Gaza Famine

In a historic ruling, the World Court ordered Israel to take immediate action to prevent famine in Gaza. The court unanimously demanded that Israel provide essential food supplies to the war-torn enclave, with aid agencies reporting that only one-fifth of the required supplies are currently entering Gaza.

The judges of the World Court stated that Palestinians in Gaza are already experiencing famine and at risk of further suffering if measures are not taken. To address this crisis, Israel has been ordered to increase the capacity and number of land crossing points to facilitate the inflow of supplies and keep them open for as long as necessary. Israel has been given a month to submit a report detailing its compliance with the ruling.

The decision was requested by South Africa as part of a case accusing Israel of state-led genocide in Gaza. A senior Hamas official welcomed the ruling but believed it should have gone further by demanding a ceasefire to halt the suffering of the people in Gaza. The United Nations Security Council had recently voted for an immediate ceasefire and the release of all hostages, with the United States abstaining from the vote.

Israel has stated it is working to expand humanitarian access to Gaza through various means, but aid agencies argue that these efforts are insufficient. The number of trucks blocked at the border has been described as a moral outrage by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who called on Israel to take immediate action to ensure that basic food supplies reach those who need them most. As of now, there has been no comment from Israel’s foreign ministry regarding the World Court’s ruling.
