“Israel’s commitment to international law is unwavering.

Netanyahu said Israel has an “inherent right to defend itself,” adding that the “vile attempt to deny Israel this fundamental right is blatant discrimination against the Jewish state, and it was justly rejected.”

He claimed the charge of genocide leveled against Israel is “false” and “outrageous,” reiterating that “Israel will continue to defend itself against Hamas.”
