Bolivia decided to sever relations with Israel over the “aggressive and disproportionate Israeli military offensive” in besieged Gaza.

The government of Bolivia decided to break diplomatic ties with Israel, accusing Tel Aviv of committing crimes against humanity in the besieged Gaza Strip, the Bolivian vice chancellor Freddy Mamani announced on Tuesday.

Bolivia “has made the determination to break 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 and the threat to international peace and security,” Mamani said.

Israel has, thus far, killed over 8,500 Palestinians in Gaza, including 3,457 children, and wounded more than 23,000. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
