ICJ ruling on Israel for Gaza gencode: Erdogan welcomes order

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his approval of the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) interim decision on the genocide case involving Israel. Erdogan described the provisional measures as valuable, specifically highlighting the ICJ’s temporary injunction addressing the inhumane attacks in Gaza.

Erdogan emphasised Turkey’s commitment to monitoring the ongoing process to ensure accountability for war crimes committed against innocent Palestinian civilians.

The ICJ had directed Israel to take necessary actions to prevent further bloodshed in Gaza, aligning with its obligations under the Genocide Convention. Additionally, the court called for the immediate release of all hostages.

“I find the temporary injunction taken by the International Court of Justice regarding the inhumane attacks in Gaza valuable and welcome it. We will continue to follow the process to ensure that war crimes committed against innocent Palestinian civilians do not go unpunished,” Erdogan said on X.

Erdogan expressed hope that the binding decision, applicable to countries party to the Genocide Convention, would put an end to Israel’s indiscriminate attacks on women, children, and the elderly.

He underscored Turkey’s determination to actively contribute to achieving a cease-fire, fostering permanent peace, and standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
