Reuters reports that on Thursday, the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to take all the necessary and effective action to ensure basic food supplies arrive without delay to the Palestinian population in Gaza.

South Africa requested the new measures as part of its ongoing case that accuses Israel of state-led genocide in Gaza.

The court's decision highlights the worsening living conditions of the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip and the spread of starvation.

The judges of the International Court made this decision unanimously.
