Ireland to Intervene in South Africa’s Genocide Case at ICJ; Protests Continue in Amman, Jordan

HeadlineMar 28, 2024

Ireland says it will intervene in support of South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice. Irish Foreign Minister Micheál Martin said Israel’s actions in Gaza constitute a “blatant violation of international humanitarian law on a mass scale.”

In Jordan, police continue to crack down on thousands of protesters who have been demonstrating near the Israeli Embassy in Amman for three days. Protesters could be heard chanting “betrayal” as they called on Jordan to cancel its deals with Israel.

Imad Al-Malhi: “Our message has been a message of the Jordanian Popular Movement since the beginning of October 7th and before that. We are asking the Jordanian government to cancel the Wadi Araba peace treaty with Israel and all its annexes that we believe harm Jordanian national interests. This requires us to stand with the choices of the Palestinian people, who are facing an aggression by the Zionist entity, the American administration and the European West.”
