ICJ says Israel must prevent genocide in Gaza

26 January 2024

By Raffi Berg and Anna Holligan, BBC News, London and The Hague

The UN’s top court has ordered Israel to take all measures to prevent genocidal acts in Gaza, but stopped short of telling it to halt the war.

The highly anticipated hearing was part of a controversial case brought by South Africa.

South Africa had asked the court to order Israel to stop military action straight away pending a decision on whether Israel has committed genocide.

Israel has vehemently rejected the accusation as “wholly unfounded”.
