Algeria: Has Israel’s “impunity era” come to an end?

Amar Bendjama, Algeria’s permanent representative to the UN, stated that in line with the International Court of Justice’s provisional ruling, Israel’s “impunity era” has come to an end –  reports the Middle East Monitor and multiple agencies. 

On the 26th of January, the ICJ (International Court of Justice) demanded that Israel allow humanitarian aid into the besieged enclave. They ordered Israel to “take all measures within its power” to end the bloodshed in Gaza under its obligations of the 1948 Genocide Convention.

“The United Nations and the international community have pledged themselves that no criminal will escape punishment, and the Israeli occupier should not be an exception to this rule” Bendjama told a UN Security Council meeting. 

South Africa brought the genocide case against Israel to the ICJ in late December 2023. They asked it to grant emergency measures to end the carnage in Gaza where over 26,000 Palestinians have been killed since October 7th by relentless attacks with others facing horrific conditions. 

Bendjama stressed that Israel must “immediately comply with the measures agreed upon by the Court”, saying that the ICJ ruling “reaffirms” that the time of Israel’s impunity has come to an end.

He highlighted the significance of the provisional measures imposed by the UN court to protect Palestinians from genocide saying, “It is of the utmost importance to guarantee accountability in order to protect future generations from atrocities such as those being committed today in Gaza”.
