ICJ hears how Gaza would be destroyed without additional measures

South Africa’s legal team has sought to make the case before the International Court of Justice that without additional provisional measures against Israel, Gaza would be destroyed. The team asked the Justices to order a remedy that would put a stop to Israel’s military campaign in Gaza.

Their submission argues that the provisional measures previously indicated by the court were not capable of fully addressing the changed circumstances and new facts in the war, particularly in relation to an imminent full-scale military assault on Rafah, in Gaza’s south.

The team argued that were Rafah to be destroyed in Israel’s latest military onslaught, the entire enclave would be rendered uninhabitable and unable to support life.

South Africa further argued that it was no longer sufficient for the court to order unhindered humanitarian access into Gaza when it was in fact Israel’s continued military operations that was preventing it.

They want the court to order Israel to immediately withdraw from Gaza more broadly but Rafah in particular and order, anew, Israel to facilitate unimpeded access to humanitarian supplies after throttling aid by shuttering key access points.

South Africa contends that Israel’s evacuation orders to safe humanitarian zones were performative as there was no safe place left in Gaza.
