The Zionist entity’s representative in South Africa, Eliav Belotsercovsky has been rapped over the knuckles for his utterances against Pretoria over the Israeli regime’s attacks on Palestinians.
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) also reminded him to conduct himself in line with the Vienna Conventions, which amongst others, tells diplomats to recognise the sovereign decisions of the host nation.
DIRCO’s Director-General, Zane Dangor, expressed South Africa’s grave concerns regarding the trajectory of events, especially the attacks on Gaza, which has seen over 10 500 civilians, including over 4 300 children killed by Israeli airstrikes and ground attacks on Palestinians in the enclave.
Dangor also denounced the Palestinian resistance, Hamas, for launching Operation Al Aqsa Flood.
This flouts the right of any occupied or oppressed people to defend themselves.
South Africa has meanwhile called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate the Israeli leadership for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.
