President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced last week in a pro-Palestinian rally that they would declare Israel a war criminal to the world.
Authorities are now exploring ways to bring crimes committed by Israel against Palestinian civilians before the International Criminal Court (ICC), Daily Sabah reports.
According to the report, Justice Minister, Yılmaz Tunc, had said earlier that the UN resolution was an important statement proving Israel committed genocide and crimes against humanity.
The map above clearly shows what the goal of the Israeli military invasion is, cutting off the civilians from the coastline and splitting Gaza in half in order to remove, relocate or kill all these one million citizens living in the endangered area.
The resolution condemned all acts of violence against Palestinian and Israeli civilians, including all acts of terror and indiscriminate attacks, as well as all acts of provocation, incitement and destruction.
It also demanded that all parties immediately and fully comply with their obligations under international law. Tunc said in a social media post that the UN resolution was soft law, but emphasized the legally binding nature of international law.
Such resolutions approved by a large majority have been admitted as evidence in the International Court of Justice proceedings in the past.
A top UN human rights official is not alone in calling on the international community to shake off its apathy and prevent an Israeli genocide on Gaza.
Associate professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Stockton University and the endowed professor in the study of modern genocide, Raz Segal, has also called Israel’s ongoing assault on Gaza a textbook case of genocide.
