    Israel to inform ICJ of measures in compliance with genocide case

    Israel will send a formal notification to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Monday to detail how it is complying with provisional measures handed down by the court, the Times of Israel has reported.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked the foreign and justice ministries to draft a report detailing how Israel is complying with provisional measures to safeguard Palestinian civilians during its war on Gaza, the newspaper said, citing a Hebrew-language report on the Ynet news site.

    The document will focus on the orders to “prevent and punish the direct and public incitement to commit genocide”, take immediate steps to “enable the provision of urgently needed basic services and humanitarian assistance to address the adverse conditions of life faced by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip” and “prevent the destruction and ensure the preservation of evidence” pertaining to allegations of genocide.

    Israel is waging what many governments have called a genocide in Gaza and is now preparing for an offensive on the southern city of Rafah, where over a million people are displaced, raising questions on its commitment to abide by the provisional measures set by the UN court.
