Venezuela on Israeli Genocide

*Venezuela supports action taken by South Africa against Israel before the
ICJ in defense of the Palestinian people *

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela positively values the historic action
taken by the Republic of South Africa against the State of Israel before
the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on December 29, 2023, with respect
to the violations by that country of its obligations under the Convention
on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

Venezuela, as a country committed to peace diplomacy, recognizes South
Africa’s firm and historic step in defense of the Palestinian people and
International Law.

This action must be accompanied by the entire international community, with
an urgent call for respect for life and human dignity, taking into account
that recent reports prepared by the United Nations report more than 21,000
people murdered since October 7, 2023, the vast majority were children and
women, which confirms the inhumane actions of the State of Israel.

Venezuela reiterates that multilateral instances of justice must act based
on the norms and principles of International Law, and in the face of this
act of genocide, they must rise to the occasion of the serious facts that
constitute a clear aggression against humanity and, in particular, the
Palestinian people.
