World Court orders Israel to take measures to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - The World Court on Friday ordered Israel to take all measures within its power to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza.

With the reading ongoing, the court said Israel must ensure its forces do not commit genocide and take measures to improve the humanitarian situation.

Israel must report to the court within a month on what it's doing to uphold the order.
