“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, formerly known as Twitter.

The decision from leftist President Castro’s government follows similar moves from likeminded peers in the region earlier in the week.

Chile’s Gabriel Boric and Colombia’s Gustavo Petro also recalled their countries’ ambassadors to Israel for consultations over events surrounding the conflict in Gaza, while Bolivia moved to sever diplomatic ties to Israel.
