International Court Of Justice

Preliminary hearings open at the United Nations’ top court in a case that seeks an end to German military and other aid to Israel, based on claims that Berlin is 'facilitating' acts of genocide and breaches of international law in the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza. While the case brought by Nicaragua centers on Germany, it indirectly takes aim at Israel's military campaign in Gaza following the deadly Oct. 7 attacks by Hamas-led militants.
