Thu 02 May 2024 | 02:25 AM

On Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan announced his country's decision to join a lawsuit initiated by South Africa against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

This legal action follows a recent ruling by the ICJ, prompted by a request from South Africa, demanding that Israel take necessary measures to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip. Moreover, the court emphasized Israel's responsibility to ensure that its military actions do not infringe upon the rights of Palestinians living in Gaza.

This involvement by Turkey underscores its support for South Africa's efforts to address and rectify perceived human rights violations by Israel in Gaza, highlighting a concerted effort to ensure adherence to international humanitarian laws.
