South Africa’s justice minister says Israel failed to disprove ‘compelling’ genocide case

South Africa’s Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Ronald Lamola says in a statement outside the International Court of Justice in The Hague that Israel has failed to present evidence against South Africa’s claim that it is committing genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.

“The State of Israel today has failed to disprove South Africa’s compelling case that was presented before The ICJ yesterday. We stand by the facts the law and all the evidence we have submitted,” Lamola says, adding that in light of Israel’s defense today, South Africa still believes it is acting in violation of the Genocide Convention.
