Bolivia declared today Israel a “terrorist state,” adding that all Israeli citizens, from Bolivia’s declaration on, will require a visa to travel to Bolivia.
The president of Bolivia Mr. Evo Morales announced the declaration in person, “during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba,” AFP reported.
Morales said the following:
“Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”
It “means, in other words, we are declaring [Israel] a terrorist state,” Morales added.
The statement comes to highlight the Bolivian president statement few days ago, during an interview given to teleSUR tv (video underneath), when he said that Israel is committing a genocide in Gaza against the Palestinian people.
The death toll in Gaza is at 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded, with around 80% of the casualties declared as civilians.
As a matter of fact, just today, 16 people passed away after that Israel shelled another United Nations school, an attack which left the United Nations Relief and Works Agency’s Spokesperson Chris Gunness in tears when closing his interview with Al Jazeera chanel.
