Egypt submits to the International Court of Justice its conclusions regarding Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories since 1967

The Egyptian government announced on Sunday that it will submit a report to the International Court of Justice next Wednesday on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967. The hearings, which begin Monday, will work to support the court’s opinion. The International Court of Justice on possible violations of international law based on the United Nations’ request to the court in December 2022, Egyptian state newspaper Al-Ahram reported. Fifty-two countries are expected to provide evidence on the legal consequences of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, although it is of particular importance in the case of Egypt due to its proximity to the country. Egypt has already submitted two written reports to the court documenting violations of international law, especially the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, Egyptian government spokesman Diaa Rashwan confirmed. Specifically, land annexations, home demolitions, expulsions, deportations, and forced displacement of Palestinian residents, forceful confiscation of land, and violations of the Palestinian right to self-determination have been documented. Rashwan stressed that the report will clarify “the discrimination practiced against the Palestinians in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and human rights.” The text also refers to the “illegal” Jewish settlements established on Palestinian lands. Finally, it will demand the immediate withdrawal of Israeli forces from the occupied Palestinian territories, including the city of Jerusalem, as well as compensation for the damages resulting from these practices. It also calls on the international community not to recognize the legitimacy of Israeli decisions and to stop supporting Israel. It also calls on United Nations humanitarian organizations to assume their responsibilities towards the Palestinian population. Rashwan stressed that the argument would reaffirm the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice in this case based on the San Francisco Charter, which established the United Nations.
