Israel has angrily denied claims that it threatened the safety of a South African minister, and in return has accused her of a “blood libel” and “serving as the legal arm” of Hamas.

Relations between the two countries hit a new low last month, when South Africa filed a case against Israel at the International Court of Justice, accusing Israel of committing genocide in Gaza – a charge it has rejected.

Since then, Naledi Pandor said she had spoken to South African Police Minister Bheki Cele about beefing up her security after she received threatening messages.

Around 1,200 people were killed during the Hamas attacks on southern Israel on 7th October, according to Israeli officials.

More than 27,800 Palestinians have been killed and at least 67,000 injured by the war launched by Israel in response, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
