‘Genocidal invocation' by Israeli Prime Minister: South Africa

Ngcukaitobi submitted as evidence comments by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s on October 28, 2023 urging ground troops preparing to enter Gaza to "remember what Amalek has done to you."

“This refers to the Biblical command by God to Saul for the retaliatory destruction of an entire group of people,” said Ngcukaitobi.

“The genocidal invocation to Amalek was anything by idle. It was repeated by Mr Netanyahu in a letter to the Israeli armed forces on November 3, 2023”, he added.
