TEHRAN, June 02 (MNA) – Chile has joined a group of nations supporting a genocide case against Israel filed last year at the International Court of Justice.President Gabriel Boric said in a speech to lawmakers Saturday that he was appalled by the humanitarian devastation in Gaza, especially against women and children.

He noted that the Israeli military used “indiscriminate and disproportional” force, AP reported.

“These acts demand a firm and permanent response of the international community,” the president said.

South Africa took Israel to the ICJ in late 2023, blaming it for genocide in Gaza.

An interim ruling in January said it is "plausible" that Tel Aviv is committing genocide in the coastal enclave, and ordered Tel Aviv to stop such acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians.
