ordered israel to stop its military operation there. We have the details. >> Reporter: inside this court room in the netherlands a land mark emergency ruling in a case brought forward by south africa accusing israel of genocide. >> Israel has not sufficiently address and had dispelled the concern raised by its military offensive in rafah. >> Reporter: and a strict order from the court. >> It must hold its military offence and any other action in the rafah area which may inflict on the palestinian group in gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction. >> Reporter: the president of the court also ordered israel to open the rafah border crossing to allow humanitarian aid in calling the situation in gaza catastrophic. >> Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: canada's position has been clear for many, many weeks now. We need an immediate ceasefire. Hamas needs to lay down its arms, release all hostages, but there must be no more military operation inside rafah. >> Reporter: the court also called for the release of all remaining hostages. While the order is legally binding they lack the power to enforce it. >> The international court of justice doesn't have its own army. It doesn't have its own police. It it depends upon the security council to implement its orders. >> Reporter: this is the third time the court has issued orders for israel to pull back and address the suffering in gaza, but israel has been accused of ignoring their orders in the past. >> Israeli spokemen have already announced that essentially israel will not comply with the order. That they'll continue their operation. >> Reporter: israel has repeatedly dismissed accusations of genocide saying it has the right to defend itself from hamas. South africa's wider case here accuses israel of state led genocide against palestinians. The decision on that could take years, but the icj has rejected israel's rerequest to throw the case out. Ctv news, ottawa. >> Roger: let's bring in an international relations and political science professor at the university of toronto. Professor, thank you for joining us this morning. >> Thank you. >> Roger: what do you think of this decision and where will it go? >> It is very clear that the court has other institutions that would like to see the end of human suffering and the loss of any life on any side is a tragedy, but I think it is so important to look at this ruling carefully. To read the entire ruling because there is such a great chance of misunderstanding it and misrepresenting it. Weave had that in the ruling in january. We risk having it now. What the washington journal said it does not halt all operations. Only some and four of the judges that is several of the judges have said in their opinion after which that what this prohibits is not action in general, but it prohibits israel from engaging in anything that violates or is not in compliance with the genocide convention and israel that is claimed that they have not violated the convention. It is invalid. The ruling is saying that it has to halt operation that is may, may create conditions in gaza where life could be put at risk or physical destruction in whole or in part. And israeli awrkt is not at some -- argument is not as some diplomats that israel is not claiming. It is saying that -- they have not violated that. The amount of firepower israel has if they were engage being hamas which it has the right to do. The majority of the population of gaza would already have been destroyed, and in fact of it has been evacuated and the war is against hamas. It is not a war against the palestinian population. And yes, world leaders are saying that hamas needs to put its arms down. Hamas needs to leave. But hamas is not going to leave just by having sent a notice of eviction. And israel's argument is that this is a defensive war. If something was brought on israel if there was a ceasefire on october 6th. This is not a war of choice but something necessary to ensure the safety of its population. >> Roger: so this sounds like this really isn't going to go anywhere then. >> The israeli delegation and not only that but that of

several junction is as long as israel is in -- then it can pursue military action to help eradicate hamas which as the five principle democracies shortly after the horrific massacre committed by hamas which is not deliberately committed, but celebrated by hamas and by supporters and iran and and continues to be the democracy said that hamas has been nothing but a tragedy for the palestinian people as well. That they have brought the palestinians hamas nothing but terror and blood shed and they need p to be removed. And so sadly in a war it is very difficult to have one where there are no casualties. There is no magic. If any has that magic they should articulate how it is done because it it wasn't done in afghanistan. It one done in former ugoslavia. This is a sad nature of war. This is not to say that everything should not be done to try to limit collateral damage. >> Roger: thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> Thank you. >> Roger: an international relations and political science professor at the university of toronto. >>> Egypt has agreed to send aid trucks into gaza but getting through the main crossing is still a mystery. Officials have voiced concerns about the mounting violence near the main border going into gaza. The humanitarian aid and food supplies have been dramatically depleated over the last few weeks. The icj ordered israel to open the rafah crossing to allow for the flow of aid and stop the assault of rafah no enforcement has been provided >>> Federal prosecutors are seeking to bar donald trump from making controversial statements over the classified documents case. Earlier this week trump claimed that the fbi agents who searched his mar-a-lago estate were quote authorized to shoot me and were locked and loaded, ready to take me out and put my family in danger. Federal lawyers say comments like those pose a significant and imminent danger to law enforcement agents who are taking part in the prosecution. According to prosecutors trump's team has objected to the motion.
