Cuba joins South Africa's lawsuit against Israel

Havana asks to "stop the atrocities against the Palestinian people" caused by the Israeli government.

The Government of Cuba announced this Friday that it is joining, as a third State, South Africa's lawsuit before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel for the genocide suffered by the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

Through a statement, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicated that it made this decision given that “Israel has flagrantly violated” international norms “with its actions in the illegally occupied Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip.”

The main objective, explained the Cuban Government, is “to stop the atrocities against the Palestinian people as a result of the disproportionate and indiscriminate use of force by Israel.”

Finally, Cuba criticized the “total impunity” with which the Jewish country acts, “protected by the complicity of the US Government.” In this way, Israel “ignores its obligations as an occupying power,” she said.

“We must put an end to the massacre against the people of Palestine,” expressed, for his part, the Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, in his official account on X.

There are already eight countries aligned in the demand

With this step, Cuba joined Chile, Nicaragua, Colombia and Mexico, Latin American states that have expressed their request to join South Africa's demand.

The last had been the southern nation, after Chilean President Gabriel Boric condemned the Israeli “indiscriminate and absolutely disproportionate actions” during his public account, held on June 1.

Türkiye, Egypt and Libya also requested to be part of the case.
