Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the United Nations’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) "can go to hell" after the body ordered Israel to halt its military operations in southern Gaza. 

"As far as I’m concerned, the ICJ can go to hell," he wrote Friday on X. "It is long past time to stand up to these so-called international justice organizations associated with the UN."

As if Israel’s legal and diplomatic woes weren’t dire enough, this afternoon in The Hague, the International Court of Justice ordered it to suspend its military operations in Rafah, to open the Rafah crossing to humanitarian aid, and to allow international observers into Gaza to ensure that evidence of Israeli genocide is not destroyed.

Today’s landmark ICJ “provisional measures” order is the Court’s response to South Africa’s May 10 application. 

Russia hopes that the investigation into the rocket strike on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, which was carried out by the Ukrainian military last year, will concern the suppliers of HIMARS rockets, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, told the UN Security Council in an open debate on the protection of civilians in civil conflicts.

When on May 10, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) voted overwhelmingly in favour of Resolution ES-10/23 relating to Palestine’s membership application, some media qualified it as “support for Palestinian statehood”. This seeming confusion follows the United States government’s talking points conflating statehood with membership and claiming this would hurt “peace efforts”.
