PBS News Weekly: The Israel-Hamas War | Jan. 26, 2024

The war has between Israel and Hamas has passed the three-month mark. PBS News Weekly takes a look at the internal battle among Israeli officials on the path forward in this war, the controversial accusation of genocide and the mounting humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The International Court of Justice on Friday handed down a preliminary order in response to South Africa’s case accusing Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. The court declined South Africa’s request for a cease-fire, but also declined Israel’s request to throw out the case entirely.

This comes as the humanitarian crisis in Gaza continues, as the U.N. says that 1.7 million of Gaza’s 2.2 million residents are currently displaced and hundreds of thousands are at serious risk of famine.
