The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates welcomed Cuba's announcement that it will intervene in the case concerning the Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip (South Africa v. Israel) before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

In a statement on Saturday, the Ministry said, "This decision exemplifies Cuba's steadfast commitment to justice and the international rule of law, and underscores the deep-rooted solidarity and historical friendship between our nations."

The Ministry also called upon all states party to the Convention to actively engage in the proceedings before the ICJ, explaining that ending the ongoing genocide against the Palestinian people and combatting Israel's impunity are responsibilities that must be shouldered jointly for the sake of humanity and the law.
