Colombia is going to cut ties with Israel

Colombian President Gustavo Petro

Colombia is going to sever all diplomatic relations with Israel today due to the Palestinian attack on Gaza. This was announced by the country’s president Gustavo Petro on Wednesday local time.
In front of the people gathered on the occasion of International Workers’ Day, Petro said that his country is going to cut off all diplomatic relations with Israel on Thursday (April 2).
Petro has been harshly criticizing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since the beginning of the attack on Gaza. He has been urging other countries to join South Africa’s charge of genocide against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

“The President of the Republic declares before you that tomorrow we will sever diplomatic relations with Israel,” Petro said in his announcement to a packed crowd. In his speech, Petro called the Israeli head of state a genocidal.

Petro also said that no country in the world can remain inactive in such a situation in Gaza.

Bolivia, another South American country, severed diplomatic relations with Israel immediately after the attack on Gaza in October last year. At that time, several other South American countries, including Colombia, Chile and Honduras, withdrew their ambassadors from Israel.

Meanwhile, Israel has expressed anger at the announcement of the President of Colombia. The country’s foreign minister, Israel Katz, complained that Petro’s announcement was “full of anti-Semitism and hatred”. His move is a reward for Hamas.
