Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abu al-Ghait, in his statement last night, said, “It is quite natural and logical for the Arab League to fully support the case that South Africa filed against Israel with the ICJ on charges of genocide.”
Gayt thanked South Africa “for adopting this principled attitude that puts human values above all other considerations” and expressed his hope that the ICJ would issue a fair and courageous decision that would end the suffer of Palestinians.
Gayt stated that the Arab League wanted to be involved in the case, but as an organization, it did not have the opportunity to be involved in such a case at the ICJ.
On the other hand, Arab League Spokesperson Gamal Rushdi, in his written statement, stated that the Arab League instructed the relevant units to follow the case in question and that they were ready to support the case.
Rushdie stated that he looks forward to a decision in the case that will ensure that the war against civilians in the Gaza Strip ends as soon as possible and that will pave the way for all Israeli officials involved in the crime of genocide to be held accountable.
