South Africa's International Relations and Cooperation Minister, Naledi Pandor, called for a ceasefire in the Gaza war and the opening of humanitarian corridors during her address to the National Assembly. She also called for accountability and urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) to hold Israel accountable for violations of international criminal law. Pandor's call echoes similar calls from Algeria's President and the Palestinian Prime Minister. South Africa supports a two-state solution and believes in the right of Israel to exist alongside a state of Palestine. Israel is not a member of the ICC and has refused to cooperate with the court's investigation into war crimes in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
