The International Court of Justice in the Hague rejected South Africa’s request to order a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip on the grounds of genocide on Friday – but with the majority consensus of 17 judges, several interim measures were issued that called on Israel to prevent genocide, allow humanitarian aid to enter Gaza, and punish those inciting to genocidal acts.

Judge Julia Sebutinde of Uganda, however, was the only judge who voted against all six emergency measures adopted by the court – alongside the Israeli representative to the jury, former president of the Israeli Supreme Court Aharon Barak, who also opposed most of the measures.
