SF urges Government to join ICJ case against Israel

Sinn Féin has said there is no logical reason why the Government is not joining South Africa’s case against Israel at the International Court of Justice.

Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs Matt Carthy said the Government previously joined proceedings at the ICJ against Russia over of its actions in Ukraine and it must do likewise now.

“What the Palestinian people require, what international law requires and what humanity requires is meaningful action.

“The South African government have taken a meaningful action by bringing this case to the Hague this morning. And it is imperative in our view that the Irish Government join them in that endeavour,” he said.

Mr Carthy said that Israel continues to ignore international calls for a ceasefire in Gaza and therefore there is a need for substantive actions which Ireland should support.

“The arguments for not doing something are very crass and don’t stand up to scrutiny,” he said.
