The UN Security Council (UNSC) will meet on Wednesday over the decision by the International Court of Justice ordering Israel to prevent acts of genocide in besieged Gaza.

Algeria requested the meeting late Friday after a closed-door meeting of the UN’s 22-member Arab group.

On Friday, the court asked Israel must do everything it can to prevent the commission of all acts within the scope of the Genocide Convention.

It also said that Israel must take immediate and effective measures to enable the provision of urgently needed basic services and humanitarian assistance to address the adverse conditions of life faced by Palestinians.
