Israel recalls ambassador to SA for ‘further consultation’

Israel calls back its ambassador to SA for “more discussion. “

It comes before a National Assembly vote on whether Israel and South Africa should sever diplomatic ties.

A virtual BRICS summit on the conflict and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is also scheduled for President Cyril Ramaphosais.

Following the most recent statements made by the South African government, the Israeli foreign ministry reported that Ambassador Eli Belotserkovsky was being called back for consultations.

The nation requested an investigation into any war crimes against the Palestinian people from the International Criminal Court last week.

Four nations, including Bolivia and Bangladesh, were included in the referral.

Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, the minister of the presidency, expressed concern about the atrocities being committed in Gaza during a post-cabinet briefing on Monday.

In addition to ongoing assaults on hospital staff, patients, and hospital infrastructure, there were also deliberate attacks on the United Nations School in Gaza and the massacre of hundreds of children who had sought refuge there.

Ntshavheni anticipates that the ICC will issue Netanyahu an arrest warrant.

Last week, MPs discussed the potential suspension of all diplomatic ties with Israel and the proposed closure of Israel’s embassy in South Africa.

More than 13, 000 people in Gaza, mostly civilians, have died as a result of the war, which is now in its seventh week, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gasa.
