ICJ Issues Six Emergency Measures Against Israel in Gaza Genocide Case

The International Court of Justice, the UN’s top court, with a majority of 15 votes against two, has issued a binding interim order against Israel, encompassing the following six preventive measures:

1- Taking all necessary measures to prevent acts of genocide against Palestinians, especially killing, physical and psychological harm, imposing conditions conducive to genocide, and imposing conditions to prevent births.

2- Prohibiting the Israeli armed forces from committing the aforementioned acts.

3- Preventing and punishing incitement to commit genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.

4- Providing immediate life-saving humanitarian aid and services to Palestinians in Gaza.

5- Preserving and preventing the destruction of evidence regarding acts of genocide.

6- Israel is required to submit a report to the court within one month detailing all measures taken to implement the preventive measures outlined in the interim order.

ICJ's President, Judge Donoghue, announced that the court has decided that Israel must “take all measures within its power” to prevent all acts within the scope of the genocide convention. She emphasized that Israel must ensure “with immediate effect” that its forces do not commit any of the acts covered by the convention. Additionally, she stated that Israel must take immediate measures to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
