S. Africa Calls For ICC Arrest Warrant For Israeli PM Netanyahu (PICS) by TMKsouth: 5:06pm On Nov 07, 2023
South Africa's International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor has called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to act against key decision-makers in Israel, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the bombing of Gaza, which has killed thousands of civilians, women and children.

Pandor told Parliament on Tuesday, during the debate on the Palestine conflict, that the murder of women, children and the elderly is an act that should have led to the ICC to immediately issue a warrant of arrest against Netanyahu and top officials in Tel Aviv.

The debate in Parliament takes a place a day after government announced it was going to recall diplomatic officials from Israel.

Pandor said the killing of Palestinians has been going on for too long, and the world has not acted.

She said this was not the first time that the people of Palestine have come under attack from Israel, as this has been going on for decades.

Pandor said the facts that have been released on the devastation of the conflict were horrendous.

More than 10,000 people have been killed since the conflict began a month ago and thousands were injured.

The bombing of the Gaza Strip has led to the destruction of hospitals, clinics, schools and other public facilities.

“Therefore, as South Africa, we remain steadfast in calling for an immediate comprehensive ceasefire as well as opening of all humanitarian corridors to ensure much needed aid and basic services reach those in need,” said Pandor.

She said Israel was in violation of international law and the UN Charter and the Geneva Conventions over its bombardment of civilians.

The ICC should have acted immediately against the killing of women and children.

“However, chairperson, the murder of children, women and the aged by Israel is an act that should have resulted in the International Criminal Court issuing an immediate arrest warrant for key decision-makers, including Mr Netanyahu who is responsible for violations of international criminal law,” said Pandor.

“Madam chairperson and honourable members, it is important to stress that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can only be solved through the establishment of two states, Palestine and Israel living side-by-side in peace,” said Pandor.

She added that the conflict calls for the reform of the global governance system.

I might not like the South Africa but I'm with them on this one. Israel is a criminal state.

And if you don't want to get killed in other regions and countries fix your own and stop irritating other people in their regions. You will cry tribalism and xenophobia till you learn to hold your Eastern Jewish leaders accountable.

South Africa has her mouth open, but it's Russia's voice that is coming out. No let ona BRICS deceive ona, ICC that has been silent on Russia's antics in Ukraine has no moral justification to condemn Israel on Gaza. Abi no be the same elderly, women & shuldren Hamas been kill for Israel?? As long as ure an unprovoked aggressor you can't be claiming victim against people forced to protect themselves when ur own goal is still mass genocide!

This is why it's a plus to be very versed in international affairs history. SA right from the time of Mandela, has always said that Palestinians are facing a version of the apartheid system they also faced, so they've always had natural affinity with the Palestinians.

South Africa is perhaps the only Africa country that has freed itself from Western imperialism.

Even Egypt and Morocco can't do much, they have their hands tied after benefiting financially from America.
