South Africa says it is recalling all of its diplomats from Tel Aviv following Israel and its intense air strikes on Gaza on Sunday night.
The bombardment was one of Israel’s heaviest since the war began a month ago.
According to Gaza City, in the Al-Shifa hospital, about 200 people were killed. South Africa’s government, which has long been a vocal supporter of the Palestinian cause, staunchly condemned Israel, today.
Israel has not yet commented on the South African statement but insists it is trying to minimize civilian casualties and accuses Hamas, which controls the Gaza. Strip, of using non-combatants as human shields.
