Türkiye Seeks to Join Genocide Case Against Israel at ICJ

Türkiye plans to join South Africa in its genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), according to statements made by Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan. During a press conference with his Indonesian counterpart in Ankara, Fidan expressed Türkiye’s longstanding efforts to complete the necessary legal preparations for this move. He also noted ongoing discussions with allied nations to broaden support for the case. The announcement comes after South Africa accused Israel of committing genocide in Gaza, a claim that has sparked international debate and a preliminary ICJ ruling calling on Israel to ensure the provision of humanitarian aid to Gaza. Fidan reiterated Türkiye’s commitment to the Palestinian cause and highlighted increasing international support for a two-state solution. Additionally, discussions between Türkiye and Indonesia have focused on strengthening economic ties and cooperative defense initiatives.–News Desk
