Correa denounced the Israeli war on Gaza, launched in July 8 and lasted for 29 days. “After these events, we have cancelled our trip,” the president said.
Earlier in July, Ecuador and Brazil recalled their ambassadors from Tel-Aviv in protest of the “disproportional use of force” by the Israeli military. Chile, Peru and El Salvador joined in the move and withdrew their envoys, too.
Also, on Wednesday the Ecuadorian foreign minister declared the country had “decided to open an embassy in Palestine” via Twitter.
On July 8, Israel started a war on the Gaza Strip, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, aiming to end Hamas power and other rival Palestinian forces.
The operation included air, ground and naval attacks. It killed around 1,900 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 66 Israeli soldiers and officers have been killed, according to UN re[orts.
Israel has pulled its troops from Gaza and the sides are currently observing a 72-hour ceasefire, during which they hope to agree on a settlement for lasting tranquillity.
