Al-Azhar Supports Egypt's Backing of South Africa's ICJ Action Against Israel

Mon 13 May 2024 | 01:20 AM

Al-Azhar has publicly welcomed Egypt's decision to support South Africa's lawsuit against Israel at the International Court of Justice. This endorsement aligns with Egypt’s historical commitment to supporting the Palestinian cause. Al-Azhar fully supports this political initiative, which reflects Egypt’s enduring role in promoting justice for Palestinians and countering the actions of oppressors, reinforcing the Egyptian people's support for the resilience of Palestinians in Gaza.

Al-Azhar is calling for global and widespread political and economic pressures to cease the ongoing violence and to isolate Israel diplomatically and economically. This action is aimed at holding Israel accountable for over 75 years of crimes against the Palestinian people, and to put an end to the continuous modern-day massacres that have persisted uninterrupted for over 220 days.
