Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth engaged in several debates during the 37th session of the African Union Assembly on 18th February.

Participating in the one on the report of the Committee of Heads of State and Government on climate change, he also commented on the report of the commission regarding the situation in Palestine.

He expressed deep concern that despite interim measures announced by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) urging Israel to end genocidal actions in Gaza and allow access to humanitarian aid, there appears to be no concrete actions from Israel.

Pravind Jugnauth reminded that Mauritius voted in favour of a United Nations resolution to allow the ICJ to give an advisory opinion on Israel’s violation of the rights of the Palestinian people.

“Mauritius is among the 57 countries that have submitted a written submission to the ICJ on the issue, and our country will also participate in the oral proceedings scheduled for next week. Mauritius will continue to support such initiatives, whether at the African Union or the United Nations, in order to find a solution to this conflict that is just, sustainable and conducive to peace,” the Prime Minister said.

Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres, or MSF) has expressed deep concern on X for the roughly 130 patients who remain at Khan Younis’s largest hospital.

MSF called for their immediate evacuation, saying that its teams at other Gaza hospitals are ready to treat them.

Last week, Israeli forces shelled and raided the hospital, killing at least five peopleand forcing the evacuation of many of the patients, doctors and displaced Palestinians there.

MSF says that it still has not made contact with the two members of its staff who were present during the raid.

“One has been unaccounted for since the attack and another was detained at a checkpoint by Israeli forces while trying to leave Nasser Hospital,” it said.

More than 28,400 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed and more than 68,000 wounded since the genocide began.

The ministry says at least 127 Palestinians have been killed and 205 others injured in the past 24 hours.

Despite the continued fighting in Gaza, efforts to broker a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas have been taking place in Cairo in recent days – although Qatari mediators said progress was “not very promising”.
