Quick Glance: Top U.N. Court Rules Israel's Occupation of West Bank, East Jerusalem Unlawful
  • The top United Nations court in the Hague declared Israel's 57-year occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem 'unlawful' and called on Israel to cease its presence in the occupied territories, including dismantling Israel settlements there and paying reparations.

  • The advisory decision by the International Court of Justice, although not legally binding, is expected to have limited practical implications in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, home to an estimated 700,000 Israelis.

  • This landmark decision by the ICJ marks a significant blow to Israel's international standing, as it was the first time the court had expressed an opinion on the legality of Israel's occupation.

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the ruling, denouncing its rationale as 'lies.' Netanyahu emphasized that 'the Jewish people are not conquerors in their own land.'

Quick Glance: Blinken confirms suspension of heavy bomb shipments to Israel
  • US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed on Tuesday an ongoing pause on a shipment of heavy bombs to Israel as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought to increase pressure on the Biden administration over 'withholding weapons.'

  • The pause in the shipment of heavy bombs was made public in early May, as the administration faced heavy domestic scrutiny. It served as a signal of the type of action President Joe Biden would take if Israel had moved forward with a major military operation in Rafah.

  • Netanyahu tried to revive pressure around the pause, claiming that the administration had been withholding weapons and ammunition. Blinken did not confirm if he had given Netanyahu such assurance.

  • Despite the pause, US officials argued that Israel's military operations in Rafah did not warrant further weapon holds. They continued with other arms sales and transfers to Israel throughout the war.
