Israel wanted to bomb this Saturday in Rafah, a city that it considered a key in its war against Hamas, thinking that the International Court of Justice (CIJ) had ordered the Viennese to suspend its operations in that area at the far south of the Gaza Strip.

At the same time, as their troops advance in various areas of the Palestinian enclave, a senior Israeli official told AFP that Benjamin Netanyahu’s government has the “intention” of relate “this week” to the negotiations indirect with the Palestinian Islamic movement, mediated by the United States, Qatar and Egypt, with a view to a truce agreement.

International contacts gathered in Paris, where state and Israeli representatives gathered, after a pause due to the Israeli military operation in Rafah.

The UN’s highest judicial body has ordered Israel to halt its operation in this border town with Egypt and any other actions that could result in the “total or partial physical destruction” of the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The ICJ also called for the opening of the border crossing between Egypt and Gaza in Rafah, a gateway for humanitarian aid that Israel sought earlier this month as it began its operations in the city.

The court, whose decisions are binding even if it has no means to implement them, urged the other side of the Islamic movement Hamas to immediately release all the rehenes captured in its unprecedented and ferocious October 7 attack on Israel.

However none of the two notices seem to have the demands of the court pending.

The Spanish minister of Asuntos Exteriores, José Manuel Albares, recorded in Israel this day that “the precautionary measures” dictated by the CIJ are “obligatorias”.

“Also the high fire, the liberation of the kidneys and the humanitarian fire”, added.

The High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Asuntos Exteriores, Josep Borrell, recorded at the time in Israel that the orders of the Court Internacional de Justicia are “binding” and “should be applied fully and effectively”, after the failure of the complaint. in Tel Aviv began with the military offensive in Rafah, a refuge for Palestinian civilians in southern Gaza.

“We inform you of the order of the CIJ in Israel, in the case presented by South Africa (…) The orders of the CIJ are binding on all parties and must be applied fully and effectively”, Borrell assured through a message in Social X red.

Finance ministers of the G7, the group of six mayors of industrialized economies, have called on Israel to “guarantee” banking services to Palestinian banks, after Israel appealed this week to denying them access to its system.

Israel “only pursues its extremist ideology of death and destruction with the aim (…) of increasing destruction”, estimates Yahya, a 34-year-old Palestinian in Rafah.
