South Africa recalls ambassador to Israel after killing of protesters

Israel has said its actions were necessary to stop mass infiltration

The decision by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) was taken following Israel's killing of over 50 Palestinians who were part of protests along the Gaza border since the start of the week. "It reminds us of Sharpeville in South Africa where unarmed protestors were murdered by the apartheid regime, or the 1976 youth uprising where innocent young people lost their lives for freedom", Balton said.

"Over and above our condemnation of Israel's use of force and its escalation of violence, we must also condemn its targeting of journalists, who despite being marked as members of the media, have been shot with live ammunition along the Gaza border, an indication of just how dismissive the occupation is of general worldwide standards".

The unrest comes the day after Israeli forces killed dozens of Palestinians at a mass protest at the Gaza border, most by gunfire, and injured more than 2,700, according to Gaza health officials. "The most risky place today for Jewish people - not to speak for Palestinians, but even for Jews - is in the state of Israel", Beck said.

Desai said Palestinians stood with South Africans during the struggle against apartheid and gave them resources to fight the white minority rule.

The statement concludes with a call of all South Africans to show the world that "we regard the Israeli government and its armed forces as an outcast and blight on humanity".

"The South African government's decision to withdraw the South African ambassador from Israel is outrageous and displays gross double-standards against the Jewish state", the organizations said.

The two non-governmental organisations said Israel "is facing a real danger with the incitement by Hamas of its own population to storm the security fence and attack Israeli civilians".

Ngombane, who has been serving in Israel since 2013, is now the dean of the African Diplomatic Group, which includes 16 countries.

The South African Foreign Ministry on Monday had announced that it was recalling Ngombane due to the "indiscriminate and grave manner of the latest Israeli attack" on Gaza residents.

The NFP said that the motion is the "first step" towards taking action that will bring peace for Palestinians.

"Countries, including South Africa, have been far too patient while people are killed and global law is ignored".
