Long Reads: Israel on Trial w/ John Reynolds

At least 26,000 people are now estimated to have been killed by Israel’s war on Gaza, although the real figure is believed to be even higher. The main legal challenge to Israel’s war has come from South Africa at the International Court of Justice. The court published its first response to the South African case on Friday, January 26th.

John Reynolds, professor of law at Maynooth University and author of Empire, Emergency, and International Law, joined Long Reads the day of the court response to discuss the case.
