Palestine’s UN Ambassador says ICJ to examine legal implications of continued Israeli occupation

RAMALLAH, Sunday, January 1, 2023 (WAFA) – Palestine's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Riyad Mansour, said today that a meeting will be held next week with the legal department of the International Court of Justice to discuss the materials, documents and studies needed for an ICJ advisory opinion on the Israeli occupation.

He said the meeting is the next step after the UN General Assembly's passing of a resolution earlier this week calling on the ICJ to give an advisory opinion on the consequences of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories

Mansour told the Voice of Palestine the ICJ will examine the legal implications of the continued Israeli occupation of our land, including the deprivation of our people of their rights, settlement construction, annexation of land and home demolitions by the Israeli occupation.

He pointed out that an open session of the UN Security Council will be held at the end of this month to discuss the latest developments.
