Libya submits intervention request to ICJ in South African genocide case against Israel

The Libyan Presidential Council announced that Libya had joined the state of South Africa in the genocide case as a result of the ongoing war on the Gaza Strip filed against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). 

The Libyan embassy in the Netherlands confirmed on May 10 that the conditions for the State of Libya’s formal submission to the International Court of Justice in the case pursuant to the Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip had been met, and it therefore joined South Africa in the lawsuit against the Israeli occupation.

“We are waiting impatiently for July 10, 2024, as it is the deadline given to the two main parties to express their written comments regarding Libya’s request. We are firmly confident that choosing Article 63 for submission will guarantee our admission without the possibility of any objections.” The embassy said.
