Rights Groups Say Israel Has Failed to Comply with ICJ Order to Prevent Genocide in Gaza

HeadlineFeb 27, 2024

Human rights groups say Israel has completely ignored the World Court’s order to take all measures within its power to prevent genocide in Gaza. One month after the ruling, Israel has continued to block most delivery of lifesaving humanitarian aid — food, medicines and fuel — to Gaza. Since January’s ruling, Israeli forces have killed over 3,400 Palestinians in Gaza. The Israeli government is expected to soon deliver its own 30-day assessment of “compliance” with the ICJ decision. In response, Omar Shakir with Human Rights Watch said, “Israel’s blatant disregard for the World Court’s order poses a direct challenge to the rules-based international order. Failure to ensure Israel’s compliance puts the lives of millions of Palestinians at risk and threatens to undermine the institutions charged with ensuring respect for international law and the system that ensures civilian protection worldwide.”
