Companies in the Netherlands refused to publish billboards with pictures of Israeli hostages held by Hamas ahead of Israel's genocide trial at the International Court of Justice in the Hague.

The National Public Diplomacy Directorate, through the Government Advertising Agency, prepared a billboard campaign throughout the Netherlands to raise awareness for the release of Hamas hostages ahead of the trial at The Hague. 

The campaign was expected to be launched as part of a multifaceted public relations and diplomacy program surrounding the hearing in the International Court of Justice in The Hague in which South Africa has accused Israel of committing genocidal acts against Palestinians in Gaza. 

The billboards that were designed for the campaign present different pictures of abductees, mentioning their names and the fact that they are in captivity in Gaza, under the caption “He/She can’t testify today.”

The main message conveyed in these billboards is the fact that 136 kidnapped Israelis are being held captive by Hamas and are unable to testify at The Hague trial.
