Militaire hulp aan Israël

By Phil Bainbridge

April 9, 2024 - Germany will face accusations of “facilitating” acts of genocide and breaches of international law in supplying arms to Israel, which denies its military campaign in Gaza contravenes the Genocide Convention.

Preliminary hearings are being held at the International Court of Justice in The Hague in a case brought by Nicaragua, which calls on Germany to “immediately suspend its aid to Israel, in particular its military assistance including military equipment in so far as this aid may be used in the violation of the Genocide Convention”.

In January, in a case filed by South Africa accusing Israel of breaching the Genocide Convention, the ICJ imposed provisional measures ordering Israel to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza but did not call for an immediate ceasefire or rule on the legality of its campaign. Both Germany and Israel deny breaching the Genocide Convention or international humanitarian law.
