Israel recalls ambassador from South Africa

Tel Aviv [Israel]: Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Monday night that, following the latest statements made by South African officials, the Ambassador of Israel to Pretoria has been recalled to Jerusalem for consultations.

A few days ago, South Africa’s ruling party the African National Congress (ANC) called for the country to sever diplomatic ties with Israel.

ANC spokeswoman Mahlengi Bhengu-Motsiri said, ‘We cannot sit back and watch the genocidal actions of the Israeli regime.’

Israel’s move comes two weeks after South Africa recalled its diplomats from Israel.
