Indonesia files lawsuit against Israel at International Court of Justice

Indonesia has filed a lawsuit against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) over the regime’s violations of international law in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israeli regime’s Hebrew language newspaper Maariv reported Friday that Jakarta filed the action against the regime at the ICJ in The Hague, as the regime’s brutal bombardment of the besieged enclave continues.

Reports said earlier that Jakarta has asked a team of experts to help draft a case at the ICJ to hold Israel accountable for its “policies and practices” in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said that expert advice is necessary to create a detailed legal opinion to show the world Israel’s violations of international law.

Indonesia and Slovenia announced last week that they had decided to “actively participate” in the motion for an advisory opinion due to Israel’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

The ICJ is scheduled to conduct public hearings on February 19, when Marsudi and other parties will present their perspectives on the legal consequences of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.

“Indonesia supports the efforts of the UN General Assembly to obtain an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice,” Marsudi has said.
