ICJ conclusion and compliance

In today's ICJ ruling, they had the following conclusion:

85. The Court deems it necessary to emphasize that all parties to the conflict in the Gaza Strip
are bound by international humanitarian law. It is gravely concerned about the fate of the hostages
abducted during the attack in Israel on 7 October 2023 and held since then by Hamas and other armed
groups, and calls for their immediate and unconditional release

Should/will Hamas (et al) comply under humanitarian law?
