Bangladesh stands in support of South Africa’s case against Israel in ICJ

  • January 16, 2024

Bangladesh supports South Africa’s application to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to bring Israel to justice for violating the 1948 Genocide Convention. The issue concerns the violation of Israel’s obligations in relation to Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip. Bangladesh also supports South Africa’s request for provisional measures, including suspending military operations in Gaza and allowing humanitarian aid.

Bangladesh also stands with requests for provisional measures to end the humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, a situation marked by the ongoing attacks by Israeli Defense Forces. The Bangladesh foreign ministry welcomed the opportunity to file a declaration of intervention in the proceedings. The attacks, primarily targeting women and children, are seen as a violation of international law, including the Genocide Convention.
