In a slap to the government of PM Benjamin Netanyahu, hundreds of Israelis have signalled that they’re backing the case at the International Court of Justice brought by South Africa accusing Israel of Genocide in Gaza.

More than 600 Israelis have signed a petition calling on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to rule in favour of South Africa’s lawsuit against the state of Israel, calling for a decision that will bring an immediate end to the war.

Israel’s offensive in Gaza has killed more than 23,000 Palestinians thus far, mostly women and children, according to Palestinian health officials, and rendered much of the Gaza enclave uninhabitable for the 2.2 million Palestinians living there.
