Belize,(Palestine Foundation Information Center)The Belizean government has severed its diplomatic ties with Israel over the occupying regime’s “unceasing, indiscriminate bombing” of innocent Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and its refusal to implement a ceasefire in the area.
The government of Belize, led by Prime Minister Johnny Briceño, said in a statement on Tuesday that it has repeatedly condemned the actions of the Israeli military in Gaza and called for a ceasefire.
“We have appealed to Israel to implement an immediate ceasefire and to allow unimpeded access to humanitarian supplies into Gaza,” it said. “Despite our requests, Israel has not stopped its violations of international humanitarian law nor allowed relief workers to alleviate the suffering of millions of Gazans.”
The statement also renewed Belize’s call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, unimpeded access to humanitarian supplies into Gaza, and the release of all captives captured by Hamas fighters.
The Central American nation also withdrew its accreditation for Israel’s ambassador there and suspended its own diplomatic activities in Tel Aviv.
