South Africa accused Israel on Thursday (Jan 11) of subjecting Palestinians to genocidal acts and demanded that the U.N's top court order an emergency suspension of Israel's devastating military campaign in Gaza.

Irish lawyer and advisor to South Africa’s legal team, Blinne Ni Ghralaigh, said, “It is the first genocide in history where its victims are broadcasting their own destruction in real time in the desperate so far vain hope that the world might do something.”
