South Africa requests ICC issue warrant for Netanyahu’s arrest

The government of South Africa wants the International Crime Court (ICC) to arrest Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by mid-December.

Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni said that if the ICC didn’t do this, it would show that global governance has completely failed.

She said that the world cannot just watch and do nothing.

Israel says it is protecting itself after the 7 October attack by Hamas, which resulted in 1,200 deaths and over 200 people being held captive.

It says they are trying to reduce harm to the people who are not in the military, but Ms Ntshavheni said the Israeli government was trying to move most of the people out of Gaza and take control of it.

South Africa, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Comoros, and Djibouti asked the ICC to look into if war crimes and crimes against humanity happened in Gaza.

South Africa has always been a strong supporter of the Palestinian cause.
