TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – The Honduran government has recalled its ambassador to Israel for consultations due to the humanitarian situation suffered by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Foreign Minister Enrique Reyna announced on the X platform on Friday.

“In light of the serious humanitarian situation suffered by the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip, the government of President Xiomara Castro decided to immediately summon the Ambassador of the Republic of Honduras to Israel, Mr. Roberto Martinez, for consultations,” Reyna said.

The decision taken by Castro’s leftist government follows similar moves taken by other countries in the region earlier in the week.

Chile and Colombia recalled their ambassadors to Israel to consult on events surrounding the conflict in Gaza, while Bolivia moved to sever diplomatic relations with Israel.
