On Wednesday, Jordan took the step of recalling its ambassador to Israel as a strong protest against the Israeli military actions in the Gaza Strip.
Jordan's Foreign Ministry issued a statement, expressing the decision made by the country's Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi to bring Ambassador Rasan Al-Majali back to Amman from Israel. The statement cited the reason for this recall as a response to Israel's ongoing military operations in the Gaza Strip, which have resulted in the loss of innocent lives and raised significant human rights concerns in the region.
Furthermore, Jordan has also urged Israel's Foreign Ministry to inform its ambassador to Jordan, Rogel Rochman, who had remained in Israel due to security threats in Amman, not to return at this time.
This move follows similar actions taken by other countries, including Colombia, Chile, and Bolivia, in recalling their respective ambassadors from Israel.
In response to the recalls from Chile and Colombia, Israel's Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lior Haiat, defended Israel's actions by emphasizing that the state is engaged in a conflict initiated by a terrorist organization. He noted that this conflict involves the use of Gaza Strip residents as human shields, and that it is a complex situation with a broad impact that extends beyond Israel's borders.
