Judges at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel on Friday to halt its military operations on the southern Gaza city of Rafah, APA reports.

Reading out a ruling by the International Court of Justice or World Court, the body's president Nawaf Salam said provisional measures ordered by the court in March did not fully address the situation in the besieged Palestinian enclave now, and conditions had been met for a new emergency order.

"Israel must immediately halt its military offensive" in Rafah, he said.

South Africa's lawyers asked the ICJ last week to impose emergency measures, saying Israel's attacks on Rafah must be stopped to ensure the survival of the Palestinian people.
