From CNN's Antoinette Radford

South Africa has now finished presenting its case. Israel, which has denied the allegations, will respond on Friday.

Mr Vusi Madonsela, South Africa’s ambassador to the Hague ended day one of the hearing by detailing the country’s requests for provisional measures.

He requested the measures be considered “as a matter of extreme urgency”.

Among the provisional measures requested include:

  • That Israel suspends its military operations in and against Gaza
  • That Israel ensures its military – and any associated groups stop any military operations
  • That Israel stops killing Palestinian people
  • That Israel stops displacing Palestinian people from their homes and ensures they have access to food, water, healthcare and basic infrastructure
  • That Israel take “all reasonable actions within their power to prevent genocide”
