Foreign Minister Katz accuses South Africa of violating Genocide Convention by supporting Hamas

Foreign Minister Israel Katz accuses members of the international community of double standards in matters that concern Israel upon the conclusion of Israel’s defense against South Africa’s charges of genocide at the International Court of Justice.

In a statement published by Foreign Ministry spokesman Lior Haiat, Katz says that South Africa’s claims were “baseless” and accused it of violating the Genocide Convention “by supporting the terrorist organization Hamas, which calls for the elimination of the State of Israel.”

“I hope that the complaint will be dismissed outright and I believe that justice will prevail,” he adds, thanking Israel’s legal team for their “impressive” arguments during today’s hearing.
