ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday lauded the International Court of Justice (ICJ)’s verdict to order Israel to stop its attack on Gaza and Rafah. In a statement via social media, the Prime Minister reaffirmed Islamabad’s strong commitment to the just struggle of the people of Palestine.

He said, “We hope the oppressed people of Kashmir would receive similar attention from the world, as they too have been enduring brutal occupation and denial of fundamental basic rights for the last seven decades.”

The top United Nations court has ordered Israel to stop military offensive in the southern city. The International Court of Justice also demanded the immediate release of all captives still held by Hamas.

The court also ordered Israel to keep open the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt, which it closed earlier at the start of its attack on the city. Israel gave no signal it was preparing to change course in Rafah
