Arab League Secretary-General welcomes ICJ ruling on Israel's alleged genocide

Cairo, January 27, 2024, The Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, has warmly welcomed the interim ruling delivered by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) concerning the alleged genocide committed by Israel, the occupying power, in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement issued today, Aboul Gheit emphasized that the provisional measures mandated by the ICJ ruling represent a triumph for humanitarian values and a resolution to the controversy surrounding the blatant violations of international law and humanitarian law evident in the conflict in Gaza. He stressed the imperative of fully and immediately implementing these measures.

Aboul Gheit pointed out that the court's interim ruling paves the way for intensified diplomatic and legal actions at both Arab and global levels aimed at putting an end to what he described as the barbaric Israeli war against the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip. Additionally, he highlighted that the provisional measures imposed by the ICJ on Israel, to prevent further acts of genocide in Gaza, are binding on the occupying power, which is obligated to adhere to them.

The statement further asserted that the ICJ's ruling should compel the international community to take effective action to enforce an immediate ceasefire and bring an end to the daily crimes committed by the Israeli occupation forces in Gaza. Aboul Gheit expressed the hope that the interim court ruling would lead to a complete and immediate cessation of the war.

In closing, Aboul Gheit reiterated his appreciation for the efforts of South Africa and its legal team, noting that the ruling reflects the court's conviction in the validity of the arguments they presented and underscores the weaknesses in the Israeli position, which he characterized as involving a significant amount of deception.
