In Numbers: Israeli regime’s genocidal acts in Gaza since ICJ ruling on Jan. 26

By Press TV Website Staff

From dead bodies lying scattered the streets to hospitals, schools and residential neighborhoods reduced to rubble, events in the besieged Gaza Strip since October 7 have been described as a textbook example of genocide.

According to the Gaza health ministry, nearly 30,000 Palestinians, including over 13,000 children, have been killed in the indiscriminate aerial and ground attacks that began 144 days ago.

Late last month, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued provincial measures in a case filed by South Africa, calling on the Tel Aviv regime to “take all measures possible to prevent acts of genocide.

The historic ruling signaled a major victory for the South African side and the Palestinian resistance as Israel was for the first time dragged to the top UN court based in The Hague.

One month since the ruling was issued, the apartheid regime continues to kill Palestinian civilians and bombard their houses across the besieged strip, ignoring worldwide calls for a ceasefire.

The government media office in Gaza released these figures on Monday, corresponding to the period between January 26 and February 26, which reveals that the genocidal acts have only accelerated.
