ICJ new decision obliges Zionist enemy to stop famine in Gaza

The International Court of Justice in The Hague on Thursday adopted a new majority decision obliging the Zionist enemy entity to take the necessary measures in order to ensure the entry of basic food supplies into the Gaza Strip and stop the spread of famine there.

The resolution, its second resolution in the recent period, which was adopted by a majority of 14 votes out of 16, is binding on the Zionist enemy entity, and reaffirms the precautionary measures contained in the resolution issued on January 26.

This resolution comes after the UN Security Council resolution, which effectively condemned the Zionist enemy entity by demanding an immediate ceasefire.

Despite the absence of an executive mechanism to oblige the Zionist enemy entity to abide by the two resolutions, legal and diplomatic sources view the two resolutions as an expression of further isolation of the usurping entity and Washington’s inability to provide more protection.

Diplomatic sources expected Algeria to propose to the Security Council
a resolution confirming the court’s decision and calling for its implementation.

And in the details of the new decision. The judges of the International Tribunal ordered the Zionist enemy to take all necessary and effective measures in order to ensure the entry of basic food supplies to the Gaza Strip and to stop the spread of famine there.

The Tribunal unanimously decided to take all necessary measures to ensure close cooperation with the United Nations without delay and the provision of services by all parties concerned, in particular by increasing capacity, the number of land crossings and keeping them open.

It also decided to ensure that the Zionist enemy “army” does not commit acts that violate any of the rights of Palestinians in Gaza, including preventing the delivery of aid, in any way. The Court also decided that the Zionist enemy should, one month from today, report to it on all the measures it had taken to implement its order.

In this context… The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas called on t
he international community to ensure that the order of the International Court of Justice to enter aid to the Gaza Strip must be accompanied by an implementation mechanism that obliges the Zionist enemy, which uses starvation as a weapon against civilians.

The movement said in a statement last night: “The enemy government, despite the previous decisions of the court, is still continuing the war of extermination against our people, without any deterrence.” It stressed that the order issued by the International Court of Justice to the Zionist enemy on the need to bring basic aid and services into Gaza must be accompanied by an executive mechanism imposed by the international community, which obliges the fascist enemy, which uses starvation as a weapon against civilians, to implement it immediately, so that this decision does not remain ink on paper, as the government of the fascist enemy, despite the previous decisions of the Court, is still continuing the war of brutal extermination against our people, withou
t any deterrence.

Hamas pointed out that the government of the Zionist enemy has consistently flouted all international resolutions, the latest of which is the UN Security Council resolution calling for a humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

It pointed out that the Zionist enemy “in a behavior that confirms that this terrorist entity acts as if it is above the law and accountability, due to the cover provided by the US administration, which is a partner in all crimes committed against children and unarmed civilians in the Gaza Strip.”

The International Court of Justice said in a statement that Palestinians in Gaza face worsening living conditions amid widespread famine.

In January, the International Court of Justice ordered the Zionist enemy entity to avoid any acts that may fall under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and to ensure that its forces do not commit any acts of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.

In the new decision, the court reaffirmed the Jan
uary measures, but added that Israel must take action to ensure the unimpeded delivery of basic services and humanitarian assistance, including food, water and electricity, as well as medical supplies and medical care to Palestinians across Gaza.

Commenting on the ICC order on aid last night, US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said: “We have no position now, because our team is still aware of the text of the resolution, but we urge Israel to facilitate the entry of more aid into Gaza.”

In flagrant violation of international laws, the Zionist enemy restricts humanitarian access to Gaza, especially by land, causing scarce supplies of food, medicine and fuel and creating a famine that has killed children and the elderly in the enclave it has besieged for 17 years and is home to some 2.3 million Palestinians in catastrophic conditions.

The Zionist enemy also faces Palestinian and international accusations of using “starvation” as a weapon in Gaza, amounting to a “war crime”, and the United Nations ca
lls on it to open land crossings to flood the Strip with humanitarian aid before famine devours more of its population.

In turn, the president of the International Court of Justice, Nawaf Salam, stressed the need for the new procedures approved by the court on Thursday. At the same time, he explained that these measures cannot fully achieve their effects, “unless the ceasefire resolution is effectively adhered to within the month of Ramadan,” which was issued by the UN Security Council a few days ago.

South Africa had requested the new measures, as part of its ongoing case accusing Israel of genocide in the Gaza Strip.

South Africa welcomed the court’s decision, and the presidency said in a statement that “the most effective way to support the right of Palestinians to exist is through measures to prevent genocide, which the court has outlined.” She stressed that the changing conditions in Gaza “require the implementation of new strategies.”

The statement added that the Palestinians are martyred not only a
s a result of the shelling and ground attacks launched by the occupation, but also because of disease and famine, urging the cessation of military operations in Gaza, and commitment to the resolutions of “international justice.”

Two months ago, the International Court of Justice called on the Zionist enemy to take measures to prevent genocide in Gaza and direct incitement to it. The court then requested that Israel report to it on its response to the measures scheduled after one month, and that all immediate measures be taken to protect Palestinians in Gaza, as well as immediate measures that would allow humanitarian aid to enter the Strip.

Despite the court’s demands and decisions, the Zionist enemy continued its war on the Gaza Strip. Intensifying the targeting of civilians and all necessities of life, and tightening the siege, so as to prevent the entry of the required aid through land crossings, as part of the war of starvation that it deliberately practices.

On March 6, South Africa called on the Inte
rnational Court of Justice to take additional emergency measures against Israel because of the “widespread famine” that resulted from its fierce war on the Gaza Strip.

Earlier, South Africa accused the Zionist enemy of setting a precedent in defying the decisions of the highest court in the United Nations, the International Court of Justice. Gaza is witnessing a “starvation” campaign.

South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor told a seminar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace during a visit to Washington that the Zionist enemy defied a decision by the International Court of Justice in January ordering it to do everything in its power to prevent genocide. “Israel has completely ignored the temporary measures.”

“We are currently witnessing mass starvation and famine before our eyes.” Warning of the repercussions of a step that could serve as an example to follow. The behavior of the Zionist enemy can be interpreted by countries as being able to do what they want without any accountability.

A UN-backed food security assessment found that Gaza faces imminent famine, with some 1.1 million people, almost half the population, suffering catastrophic hunger.

In six “provisional measures”, the court issued an effective warning to the Zionist entity. The proceedings essentially urged this usurping entity and its forces to ensure that genocide does not occur in response to the October 7 attack, guard against incitement to genocide, preserve evidence and report to the court, and urged this entity to “address the living conditions faced by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.”

At the event, the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the caretaker government, Hussein Hazeb, pointed out that Yemenis today commemorate the ninth anniversary of steadfastness in the face of aggression to express the meanings of sacrifice, steadfastness and steadfastness in the face of aggression and remind the world of the crimes that the Yemeni people have been subjected to over nine years by the forces of aggression and global arrogance and their tools in the region represented by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

He stressed that the Yemeni people, thanks to God, their steadfastness, steadfastness and strength, and then thanks to their wise revolutionary leadership, were able to fail all bets and plans of aggressio
n in targeting state institutions and displacing millions of students of educational institutions.

The Minister of Higher Education touched on the most prominent manifestations of steadfastness referred to by the Leader of the Revolution, which is represented in building and developing military, security and missile capabilities that preserved the internal cohesion of the Yemeni people. He pointed out that the most prominent factors of steadfastness were embodied in the cohesion of the state with its various institutions and the continuation of the educational process derived under the aggression.

Minister Hazeb reviewed the achievements and stages of steadfastness achieved by the Higher Education Front and its affiliated institutions at the level of the educational process in light of the aggression, through the expansion of the establishment of universities, which amounted to six public universities and 12 private universities, and the completion and description of more than 100 academic programs.

He tou
ched on the achievements of the Council for Academic Accreditation and the Information Technology Center under the National Salvation Government, fixing many imbalances regarding the baptism and characterization of academic programs nationally and seeking to adopt them internationally, improving the educational process, and establishing the unified electronic portal, which contributed to solving many of the problems that accompanied the registration process in public and private universities, in addition to the completion of a number of electronic systems, foremost of which is the Student Affairs System in Universities (NARS).

The Minister of Higher Education stressed that the ministry has achieved many successes and achievements at the educational and academic levels, expanding the establishment of universities, accrediting and characterizing academic programs in accordance with national standards, and completing the national qualifications framework in cooperation and concerted efforts of all sectors in th
e ministry and its affiliated institutions, and integration and harmony with the presidents of public and private universities.

The Minister of Higher Education revealed that the total estimated cost of the size of the direct and indirect damage suffered by the higher education and scientific research sector and its affiliated institutions during nine years of aggression, amounted to 797 billion and 759 million and 212 thousand riyals, equivalent to one billion and 505 million dollars.

Minister Hazeb stressed that there are psychological and moral damages, and it is difficult to determine their financial and material cost according to the size of t
heir psychological and moral impact due to their great association with the suffering of the higher education sector and all governmental and private higher education institutions and their affiliated students, academics, administrators and citizens in general, such as the loss of sources of income and the inability of many citizens to enroll some or all of their children in higher education and displacement from the original area of residence.

He said: “Among the great damages faced by the education sector are the suspension of the general budgets of the ministry and universities, the decline in the ministry’s own resources and universities, the cessation of external scholarship and donor support, which led to the suspension of a number of central projects, as well as the migration of cadres abroad and the dropout of students from study.”

At the conference, in the presence of Deputy Minister Dr. Ali Sharaf El-Din, the Chairman of the Council for Academic Accreditation, Dr. Ahmed Al-Haboub, praised the effo
rts of the Ministry and universities in bringing about a tangible change in the educational process, developing academic programs and achieving national accreditation for a number of medical programs, which has been awaited for half a century.

He stressed that national accreditation has become an urgent necessity for universities and an international and national demand, especially in human medicine programs, in preparation for regional and international recognition. He explained that the Council for Academic Accreditation and Quality Assurance in Sana’a has become recognized by most international and regional institutions and organizations.

Dr. Al-Haboub pointed out that the Council seeks to find a national classification of universities so that the national accreditation criterion is one of the criteria for differentiation between universities and an entrance to international recognition.

The conference was attended by the Undersecretary for the Educational Institutions Sector, Dr. Ghaleb Al-Qans, the As
sistant Undersecretary for the Planning Sector, Dr. Ilham Al-Sanabani, the Secretary-General of the Council for Academic Accreditation, Dr. Muhammad Dhaifallah, the Executive Director of the Information Technology Center, Dr. Fouad Hassan Abdul Razzaq, and the Head of the Technical Office at the Ministry, Ahmed Al-Ahssab.
