Israel’s operations in Rafah, which is situated in the southern region of Gaza, were reportedly ordered to cease immediately by the International Court of Justice on Friday.

However, a complete ceasefire has not yet been requested by the United Nations’ highest court.

The International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several leaders of the Hamas terrorist group the same week, it has been reported that it was, somewhat unsurprisingly, “unlikely” that Israel would comply with the order.

In addition, Ireland, Norway, and Spain also declared their intention to officially acknowledge a Palestinian state. A development which was seen as extremely disappointing to many of Israel’s backers.

President Joe Biden previously declared that the United States would not provide support for Israeli military operations in Rafah, which marked the initial red line in the administration’s support of its long-standing ally.

According to the court, 800,000 Palestinians have been displaced from the city since Israel initiated its operation there two weeks ago.

It cited UN officials’ warnings regarding the potential hazards of such an operation to the population in its ruling.

The court also urged Israel to permit any international commission of inquiry to enter the Gaza territory and to immediately reopen the Rafah border crossing, which the IDF seized earlier this month.

Another attempt to approve a resolution at the UN Security Council that calls for an immediate ceasefire is likely to be prompted by the decision.

The Biden administration will be under pressure to refrain from vetoing a new resolution.
