In memo to ICJ, Qatar Denounces Israeli Occupation of Palestine
Qatar submitted on Wednesday, 26 July 2023 a written memorandum during the sessions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) condemning the ongoing and illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine.
Qatar demanded the court to conclude that Israel’s obligations under international law require it to immediately stop its illegal occupation, in addition to providing full compensation for the damage and suffering caused by the occupation.
The Embassy of Qatar in The Hague affirmed that the memorandum warned that the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories aims to completely and permanently deprive the Palestinian people of their right to self-determination, stating that Israeli occupation amounts to being an illegal and racial apartheid regime.
The embassy clarifies that the memorandum drew the court’s attention to the victims of the ongoing Israeli occupation, especially children.
It also accurately documents many examples of Israel’s violations, and war crimes against the Palestinian people in the occupied Palestinian lands.
