Chile will join South Africa's lawsuit against Israel, filed at the United Nations International Court of Justice, as announced by Chilean President Gabriel Boric.

The Chilean government is expressing strong disapproval of the actions of the Israeli Army, highlighting the impact on innocent civilians, particularly Palestinian women and children.

This response includes sending humanitarian aid to Palestine, recalling the envoy from Israel, and joining the joint lawsuit with Mexico at the International Criminal Court.

By joining South Africa's lawsuit against Israel, Chile aims to hold Israel accountable at the UN International Court of Justice.

In December 2023, South Africa filed a lawsuit against Israel, accusing it of genocide in the Gaza Strip.

The court in The Hague issued a provisional ruling on January 26, mandating that Israel take measures to prevent genocide in Gaza.

Following this, on February 13, South African authorities sent an urgent inquiry to The Hague to halt military operations in Rafah. On March 6, South Africa made another emergency appeal to the court to prevent famine in Gaza.

Chile's decision to join this lawsuit emphasizes the increasing international pressure on Israel regarding its actions in the Gaza Strip and demonstrates growing global solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
