The International Court of Justice (ICJ) may issue a cease-fire order in the Palestinian Gaza Strip. Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen News Network reported that Israeli media believed that the ICJ was going to issue the order at the request of South Africa.

South Africa has called for tougher sanctions against Israel as Israeli forces step up their offensive on Rafah, the southernmost city in the Gaza Strip.

About 1.5 million Palestinians have taken refuge in the town of Rafah, South Africa told the ICJ. Also through that city enters the largest shipment of aid to the Gaza Strip via Egypt. In this situation, the Israeli aggression in Rafah will bring dire consequences for the people of Gaza.

South Africa complained to the ICJ that Israel has been carrying out genocide in Gaza since January 8. After hearing the complaint, the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to stop crimes like genocide in Gaza and allow humanitarian aid shipments to freely enter. But South Africa has complained that Tel Aviv is not complying with the orders issued by ICZ.

Meanwhile, Israel and Hamas have not yet reached a cease-fire agreement despite several rounds of talks.
