Honduras Recalls Israeli Ambassador After Chile and Colombia

Honduras recalled Israel’s ambassador, according to the Honduran Foreign Ministry, on Friday November 3 after Tegucigalpa said “Israel” had violated international humanitarian law in its war against the Palestinians.

“Amid the grave humanitarian situation the Palestinian civilian population suffers in the Gaza Strip, the government of President Xiomara Castro has decided to immediately call Mr. Roberto Martinez, Ambassador of the Republic of Honduras in Israel, to consultations in Tegucigalpa,” Foreign Minister Enrique Reina said on X.

Honduras has followed suit after Colombia and Chile actively recalled their ambassadors from Israel in the wake of the regime’s onslaught on Gaza.

“Chile strongly condemns and observes with great concern… these military operations,” Chile’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement, citing that the Israeli war on Gaza accumulated to a “collective punishment” of the besieged Strip’s civilian population.

The Chilean government further demanded an immediate end to hostilities and called to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza.

Colombia’s President, Gustavo Petro also confirmed that his country was recalling its ambassador to Israel.

“If Israel does not stop the massacre of the Palestinian people, we cannot remain there,” Petro wrote on X.  

Bolivia took a step further and completely severed diplomatic relations with Israel. Critics were quick to point out the silence of Arab nations saying “Latin American countries have more spine than some Arab kingdoms.”
