247 – United Kingdom Foreign Secretary David Cameron said on Sunday (14) that the International Court of Justice should not hold Israel responsible for the genocide charges brought by South Africa with the support of many countries including Brazil. , Sputnik reported.

The statement came despite Cameron expressing concern in early January that Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip “could violate international humanitarian law”.

“No, I'm absolutely not [acho que Israel deveria ser responsabilizado]… I think the South African action is wrong, it makes no sense, it shouldn't happen,” Cameron told Sky News when asked if he supported the accusation.

In late December 2023, in response to increasing civilian deaths in the Palestinian territory of Gaza, South Africa brought Israel's charge of genocidal intent to the ICJ. It seeks to demonstrate that Israel's military strategy is genocidal in nature and targets the Gazans as part of the broader Palestinian national, ethnic and racial group. The ICJ held its first public hearing at the Peace Palace in The Hague on 11-12 January 2024, after which it promised to take a final decision on the matter in the near future, given the urgency of the requested provisional measures.
