Israel Summons Ambassadors in Response to UN ‘Palestine’ Support


Israel’s Foreign Ministry will summon ambassadors who recently voted in favor of a Palestinian state at the United Nations Security Council to express its strong displeasure.

On Thursday, the UN Security Council voted on a draft resolution, submitted by Algeria, which called for recommending to the General Assembly that the “State of Palestine” be admitted to membership of the UN in place of its current observer status. Twelve countries backed the resolution, while Britain and Switzerland abstained. The United States as anticipated vetoed the measure.

In response, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Oren Marmorstein announced that the ministry would summon the ambassadors of France, Japan, South Korea, Malta, Slovenia, and Ecuador on Sunday to present their disapproval.

“The unambiguous message that will be delivered to the ambassadors: A political gesture to the Palestinians and a call to recognize a Palestinian state – six months after the October 7 massacre – is a prize for terrorism,” Marmorstein wrote on X.

Marmorstein stressed that Israel will not consent to the formation of a state that poses a threat to its citizens due to terrorism. He also called on international countries to exert pressure on Hamas to promptly release the 133 hostages they hold, rather than engaging in political actions that might benefit the terror organization.
