 Israel disappointed with El Salvador, Peru and Chile for recalling their ambassadors for consultations

 

(Communicated by the MFA Spokesperson)
Israel expresses its deep disappointment with the hasty decision of the governments of El Salvador, Peru and Chile to recall their ambassadors for consultations. This step constitutes encouragement for Hamas, a group recognized as a terror organization by many countries around the world.
Israel expects countries who oppose terrorism to act responsibly and not to hand terrorists a prize. So far, every time Israel accepted plans for establishing a ceasefire and restoring calm, it was countered by Hamas’s sustained rocket fire. El Salvador, Chile and Peru would have been much better advised to promote the international move intended to assist Israel in its efforts to defend innocent civilians and instate a durable ceasefire with the demilitarization of Gaza.
