Jordan asked its ambassador to return home as troubles continue. On Wednesday, the Jordon’s foreign ministry, While the ground invasion of Gaza continued by Israel, on its X handle, posted that this step is taken as a protest against the unprecedented destruction of Gaza by Israel.
The ministry further said that its ambassador’s return is only possible when Israel will end war and stop further escalations. The ministry also noted that the same conditions are for Israel’s ambassador, who left Jordon two weeks ago over the fear of protests.
Latin American responding fiercely
Bolivia announced that as a result of civil losses in Gaza, it is cutting off its diplomatic ties with Israel. At the same time, many other southern American countries have also made some critical moves regarding their relationship with Israel. Chile and Colombia have asked their ambassador to come back home for consultations.
President Gabriel Boric of Chile, while condemning the situation in Gaza, said, “Given the unacceptable violations of International Humanitarian Law that Israel has incurred in the Gaza Strip.” He went on to say, “Chile strongly condemns and observes with great concern that these military operations – which at this point in their development entail collective punishment of the Palestinian civilian population in Gaza.”
Mr. Petro, president of Colombia, said, “I have decided to call our ambassador in Israel for consultation. He further said, “If Israel does not stop the massacre of the Palestinian people, we cannot be there.”
Situation in Gaza
On the other side, the siege over Gaza continues to ascend as the Israeli military continues its second phase of ground invasion, as prescribed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. At the same time, the death toll crosses the 8500 mark, with thousands of people wounded.
In the foreseeable future, there seems to be no halt in the ongoing invasion, as Israel has made it clear. On the back of US support, Israel has rejected any appeals made for a ceasefire. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remarked that war might be prolonged, but Israel would emerge victorious.
