Bolivia Severs Diplomatic Ties With Israel Over Gaza Crisis

Bolivia has decided to sever its diplomatic ties with Israel in protest against what it deems an aggressive and disproportionate military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Deputy Foreign Minister Freddy Mamani announced this decision at a press conference, condemning Israel's actions and expressing repudiation for the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

“Bolivia has decided to cut diplomatic relations with the State of Israel, in repudiation and condemnation of the aggressive and disproportionate Israeli military offensive being carried out in the Gaza Strip," Deputy Foreign Minister Freddy Mamani told a press conference.

Moreover, Bolivia is not only cutting ties but is also taking a humanitarian approach. Minister of the Presidency Maria Nela Prada disclosed that the country is sending humanitarian aid to Gaza.

She emphasized the urgency of ending the attacks in the Gaza Strip, which have resulted in thousands of civilian casualties and the forced displacement of Palestinians.

Israel's Foreign Ministry in its response on Wednesday, accused Bolivia of "capitulation to terrorism."

A statement by the Foreign Ministry also sought to play down the decision, saying "relations between the countries had been devoid of content anyway" since a government handover there.
