Spokesman for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Stephane Dujarric, said that the Secretary-General António Guterres The notification of the provisional measures of the International Court of Justice will be transmitted immediately to the UN Security Council.
Dujarric added in a press conference that Guterres affirms that the decisions of the International Court of Justice are binding and he is confident that all parties will abide by them in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the system under which the court was established.
He also clarified that the position of the Secretary-General of the United Nations is clear regarding the independence of the International Court of Justice, and he had called for a ceasefire for humanitarian purposes and respect for international humanitarian law, and demanded the release of the hostages.
The International Court of Justice ordered Israel to take measures to prevent genocide in Gaza and direct incitement to it, and also rejected the Israeli request to dismiss the lawsuit brought by South Africa.
A large majority of members of the court's 17-judge panel voted in favor of taking urgent measures that meet most of what South Africa requested, except for directing an order to stop the war on Gaza.
Right to protection
The court said in the text read by the judges that Israel must take “all measures within its power to prevent the commission of all acts within the scope of Article II of the Genocide Convention.”
The court stated that it recognizes the right of Palestinians in Gaza to protection from acts of genocide, stressing that the conditions are available to impose temporary measures on Israel.
She added that Israel must commit to avoiding everything related to killing, assault and destruction against the residents of Gaza and to ensure the immediate provision of urgent humanitarian needs in the Strip.
Also under the ruling, Israel must submit a report to the court within a month on all interim measures.
