The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Wednesday following the International Court of Justice's ruling regarding the Gaza Strip upon Algeria's request.

In a statement, Algeria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it closely followed the ICJ ruling regarding the lawsuit filed by South Africa concerning the commission of the crime of genocide in Gaza, indicating that the meeting aims to give binding force to the ICJ ruling regarding the interim measures imposed on the Israeli occupation.

Algeria has held a non-permanent two-year membership in the United Nations Security Council since January 2024.

The ICJ had ordered the Israeli occupation on Friday to take measures to prevent acts of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza, direct incitement against them, and improve the humanitarian situation in the Strip. The court also rejected the Israeli entity's request not to accept the lawsuit filed by South Africa. (QNA)
