Algeria, Russia and China reaffirm ceasefire calls

According to SABC News, Algeria intends to introduce a draft resolution that will spell out the immediate ceasefire calls, supporting the order passed by the International Court of Justice. The court ruled that South Africa was justified in bringing charges of genocide.

Since Israel could not prove that it was not committing genocide, the court ordered that Israel take steps within its power to prevent acts of genocide. While other nations on the council support the call, The United States is allegedly not keen as it believes the conditions are unsuitable for a ceasefire.
