Can the ICJ stop Israel's assault on Rafah?

In its latest appeal, South Africa has called on the UN's top court for urgent measures to order a halt on Israel's assault on Rafah. Since early this month, Israeli forces have been pounding the southern city where more than 1.5 million Palestinians had taken shelter, after escaping from other parts of Gaza. Hundreds of thousands are being forced to flee again. Israel says its operation is limited and aimed at targeting the last stronghold of Hamas in Rafah. South Africa calls it a 'genocidal act'. The International Court of Justice has ordered some provisional measures since Pretoria first filed a case in January. But Israel has largely ignored them. So can the ICJ enforce its orders? And will its decisions make any difference, apart from affecting world opinion? In this episode: Toby Cadman, International Human Rights lawyer.  Nour Odeh, Political Analyst.  Robbie Sabel, Professor, International Law, Hebrew University.  Host: Elizabeth Puranam Connect with us:@AJEPodcasts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Threads and YouTube
