MANAGUA — Nicaragua has filed an application at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Germany, accusing it of facilitating ‘genocide’ in the Gaza Strip by providing Israel with financial and military support, as well as suspending funding for UNRWA, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.  اضافة اعلان

In the memorandum published by the court, Nicaragua stated that through these actions, "Germany is facilitating the commission of genocide and, in any case, has failed in its obligation to do everything possible to prevent the commission of genocide.”

The German Foreign Ministry did not respond immediately to a request for comment. Typically, the court schedules a hearing date for any requested emergency measures within weeks of a case being filed.

In December 2023, South Africa filed a case against Israel, accusing it of violating the Genocide Convention in relation to Palestinians in Gaza. In January, the ICJ issued a ruling and ordered emergency measures, including a call for Israel to cease any potential acts of genocide in Gaza.
