On Monday, the International Court of Justice started public hearings on the Israeli regime's crimes in Gaza, which had been requested by the United Nations General Assembly in December of 2022.

The World Court was asked to look into the legal consequences of the regime’s policies and practices in the occupied Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds, as well as in the besieged Gaza Strip. The question of the day is: Will this hearing make a difference for Palestinians or is it just more hoopla from the international community?
