Kuwait envoy breaks down relaying Palestinian suffering at ICJ

Kuwait’s envoy to the Netherlands, Ali Al-Thefeeri, broke down during his speech at the International Court of Justice. Al-Thefeeri was forced to stop his address several times as he questioned why Israel is allowed to commit crimes against Palestinians without being held to account. “Why does the victim continue to be portrayed as the killer?” he asked. More than 50 states are presenting arguments during six-days of hearings at the World Court on the legality of Israel's occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
