Belize suspends all activities of Honorary Consulate in Tel Aviv, Israel; reiterates calls for immediate ceasefire in Gaza

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Since Hamas’ unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s declaration of war, the international community has joined the call for an immediate ceasefire.

Today, the Government of Belize issued a statement suspending activities of its Honorary consulate in Tel Aviv, Israel and reiterating its call for an immediate ceasefire.

“Since the 7th October 2023, the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) has engaged in unceasing indiscriminate bombing in Gaza which has killed more than 11,000 innocent civilians, mostly women and children. The bombing has destroyed many buildings and infrastructure including hospitals, schools and other infrastructure,” a statement from the Government said.

More than 1 million people are displaced as a direct result of the war.

“Basic necessities of life – water, food, electricity, medical supplies – are severely curtailed by the Israeli imposed siege on Gaza. Lives have been lost as a result,” it added.

The Government of Belize also accused Israel of consistently violating international law, international humanitarian law and the human rights of Gazans.

“We have appealed to Israel to implement an immediate ceasefire, and to allow unimpeded access of humanitarian supplies into Gaza. Despite our requests, Israel has not stopped its violations of international humanitarian law nor allowed relief workers to alleviate the suffering of millions of Gazans,” the statement expressed.

The Government of Belize has decided to withdraw its Agrément for the accreditation of H.E. Einat Kranz-Neiger, Israel’s Ambassador Designate to Belize;

All activities conducted by the Israeli Honorary Consulate in Belize and the appointment of the Honorary Consul, are suspended;

The Government of Belize is further suspending all activities of Belize’s Honorary Consulate in Tel Aviv, Israel and withdrawing the appointment of its Honorary Consul; and

The Government of Belize is also withdrawing its request for accreditation of Jonathan Enav as Belize’s Honorary Consul.

Belize renewed its call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, the unimpeded access of humanitarian supplies into Gaza and the release of all hostages.
