Israel says South Africa distorting the truth in UN court Gaza genocide case – BBC News

Published

on



Israel has said South Africa has distorted the truth in its case to the International Court of Justice, where it is accusing Israel of genocide.

South Africa had presented “a sweeping counter-factual description” of the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Israeli lawyer Tal Becker told the ICJ.

South Africa says Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians in its war in Gaza.

It is also asking the court to order Israel to halt its military activity.

The ICJ is the United Nations’ highest court. Its rulings are theoretically legally binding on parties to the ICJ – which include Israel and South Africa – but are not enforceable.

Israel is giving its defence to the court a day after South Africa presented its case yesterday.

    Did you realize that Israel has encompassed and embodied at least 8 of the "10 Stages of Genocide" as researched and modeled by Gregory Stanton, the founding president of Genocide Watch? Keep those cameras rolling people! Even though they won't allow the press inside Gaza, nor the internet and electricity to those already inside.

    Mis -understanding of Apartheid in Gaza, Palestine were not citizen of Israel , thus, the concept of Apartheid in South Africa) a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race , economic, social and political was wrong notion on Gaza Issue. Palestine was at war with Israel since the Days of Goliath and David. Gaza was part of contested land with Israel and Palestine. In , Africa Apartheid was a legitimate issue because it was racial discrimination of white people and black people. In Gaza, Palestine people were considered as squatters by Israel Nation. There is no such things as Palestine land, Hamas were not a ragtag Guerilla force but an regular armies of the Palestine.

    Shame on BBC for not covering the points made by south africa. You are crafting your narrative by only showing one side. You should calling yourself journalists and starting calling yourselves puppets.

    Why are Israel still members of the UN? The UN have aligned themselves with Terrorists, what happened to “we do not negotiate with terrorists”? Why is my country still a member of the UN? The only country that is told that they must negotiate with Terrorists is Israel, the victim of murder, rape, kidnapping, would you want to talk to baby murderers?

    The BBC showing brief "curated" parts of the oral arguments.
    The BBC should show ALL of both presentations and allow the viewer to make up their own mind.
    Again, as if I needed it, I have it confirmed that dropping the BBC as a news source was the right move.

    Leading headline title! South Africa is using evidence collected from statements and videos created by Israeli soldiers and officials themselves, as well as actual reporting from humanitarian organizations! All Israel has to say in response is "South Africa is Hamas".

Published

on



Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been accused of violating a UN arms embargo by supplying drones to the warring sides of the Sudan civil war.

A BBC investigation has documented the Sudanese Army’s use of types of Iranian drones in its war against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). Evidence has also emerged that the RSF received modified commercial drones from the UAE.

Foreign-made drones prominently changed the course of the war on the ground since their appearance in 2023.

Sudan’s armed forces have been fighting the RSF for the last 14 months.

The BBC has contacted the Sudanese army, Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Qeshm Fars Air to comment on the allegations that Iranian drones are being used in the conflict but has not had a response.
