The Indonesian government has asked Israel to comply with the pre-trial ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICVJ) as a measure to genocide in Gaza, Palestine.

The ICJ ruling, which was issued on Friday, January 26, 2024, followed a meticulous legal process and examination of Israel’s military activities resulting in significant casualties. The ruling falls short of the largely anticipated immediate cessation of hostilities, but holds paramount importance in the eyes of Indonesia’s diplomatic efforts.

The Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on behalf of the country, acknowledging the decision as a crucial step toward accountability.

“While the ICJ decision might not meet the expectations of an immediate halt to Israel’s military actions, it remains a pivotal development for the enforcement of international law,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in its social media “X” account which was published on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

The Indonesian government stressed the necessity of Israel’s compliance with the ICJ decision to prevent further harm to the Palestinian population.

The ICJ’s directives include calls for Israel to ensure its forces refrain from acts of genocide and to take specific measures to address the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

The court has mandated that Israel reports back within one month on the actions taken to uphold the judgment, signaling a commitment to accountability in the ongoing conflict.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs underlined Indonesia’s commitment to the principles of justice, humanitarianism, and the protection of civilian populations in conflict zones.

The diplomatic move underscores Indonesia’s dedication to upholding international norms and advocating for the rights and safety of vulnerable populations.

As the international community observes closely, Indonesia’s diplomatic actions reflect a broader call for accountability and the pursuit of peaceful resolutions to conflicts.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through its statements and engagement on the international stage, aims to contribute to the discourse on responsible state behavior and the safeguarding of human rights in regions marred by conflict.
