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.'
