Washington renews its refusal to describe what is happening in the Gaza Strip as “genocide”

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on Monday renewed Washington's position that what is happening in the Gaza Strip "is not genocide," despite the fact that the death toll from the aggression on the Strip exceeds 35,000 Palestinian martyrs.

Sullivan added, in a press conference: “We do not believe that what is happening in the Gaza Strip is genocide. We have strongly rejected this assumption.”

He said that Washington uses "the internationally accepted term for genocide, which includes an emphasis on intent."

The American official pointed out that "his country made an offer, which was supported by a legal analysis, in the context of the genocide case against Israel before the International Court of Justice in The Hague."

“We believe that Israel can and must do more to ensure the protection and well-being of innocent civilians,” Sullivan continued.

At the end of December 2023, South Africa filed a lawsuit against Israel before the International Court of Justice on the grounds that it had violated the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention of Genocide.

Later, several countries submitted requests to join the case, including Türkiye, Libya, Nicaragua, and Colombia
