Yesterday, Monday, the Israeli occupation government expressed its dissatisfaction with Bahrain and Sudan’s support for the decision of the United Nations Human Rights Council to form a commission of inquiry into the violations of the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry stated to Manama and Khartoum that it was expected to vote otherwise, and that Israel is not satisfied with the way they vote, which does not contribute to promoting peace in the region, according to what was reported by the Hebrew newspaper Yediot Aharonot.
And there is talk about differences that are the first that occur between Israel and Bahrain and Sudan, which announced the normalization of their relations with Tel Aviv late last year.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a press statement, “Mexico’s ambassador to Israel, Pablo Macedo, was summoned for a clarification discussion at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after Mexico voted in the Human Rights Council in favor of establishing a commission of inquiry against Israel regarding the events surrounding Operation Fences Guard,” in reference to the recent war on Gaza. .
She added that Moody Ephraim, Deputy Director General of the Latin America Department at the Foreign Ministry explained to the ambassador that Israel’s expectations of friends like Mexico are that the good bilateral relations between the two countries are also reflected in the international arena.
Ephraim added, Israel also expects Mexico to stand with us during this difficult time in the same way that Israel is accustomed to, and to show an understanding of the security challenges that Israel faces.
And last Sunday, the Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned the Philippine ambassador to Israel for the same purpose.
The United Nations Human Rights Council (comprising 47 countries) voted last Thursday to open an international investigation into the violations committed during the 11-day conflict between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry and Hamas welcomed the decision, while Israel rejected it and confirmed that it would not cooperate with it.
The Palestinian territories, especially the Gaza Strip, witnessed an 11-day Israeli aggression that ended on May 21, after a ceasefire agreement was reached.
