Uganda renounced its judge at The Hague for her voting in the Israel genocide trial, and claimed that her positions do not reflect the country's position regarding the war.

The judge from Uganda, Julia Sebutinde, voted against all six interim injunctions announced against Israel.

"The stance taken by Judge Sebutinde is her personal and independent stance and does not in any way reflect the positions of the Republic of Uganda," read a statement issued by the Ugandan government.

Although the court did not order a ceasefire, it issued two interim orders against Israel by an overwhelming majority – against the objection of Judge Aharon Barak, Israel's representative.

In a vote of 15-2, the court warned that Israel must take effective measures to prevent genocide, and preserve the evidence within the framework of the Genocide Convention in everything related to the civilian population in Gaza.

In a vote of 16-1, Israel must take measures to meet the humanitarian needs of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

The two main Israeli concerns were a call to end the war and a call to allow the civilian population in the south to return to the northern part of the Gaza trip. A senior Israeli legal official expressed great satisfaction that neither of these rulings were made.
