Mogadishu(Mogadishu24)-The Federal Republic of Somalia on Saturday extended support for the decision by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to assert primary jurisdiction in investigating Israel’s commission of genocide in the Gaza Strip.

Somalia described the decision as landmark ruling that marked a significant step towards accountability for the atrocities committed against the Palestinian people.

“In alignment with its commitment to humanitarian principles and international law, Somalia emphasizes the urgent need for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza to prevent further loss of innocent civilian lives. The Federal Republic of Somalia underscores the imperative for Israel to cease all forms of brutal violence against Palestinians and adhere to the measures outlined by the ICJ’s decision”, stressed the statement.

The Statement added that Somalia remained steadfast in its solidarity with the Palestinian people and will continue to advocate for peace, justice, and the realization of their fundamental rights on the global stage.
