Nicaragua suspends diplomatic ties with Israel

The fall out continues: “The Nicaraguan government Tuesday suspended the country’s diplomatic ties with Israel in protest of the Jewish state’s deadly raid on the Gaza-bound international aid flotilla on Monday... The Nicaraguan government ’emphasized the illegal nature of the attack on a humanitarian mission in clear violation of international and humanitarian law,’ it added.”


Ha’aretz: “The Swedish Soccer Association has asked UEFA that its national youth soccer team not be sent to Israel for an official match scheduled for Friday against Israel in the preliminaries of the European championship. The request comes in the wake of the Israeli Navy’s interception of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that turned deadly. ‘As humans, we are revolted by violence and shocked by what we saw,’ said Lars-Ake Lagrell, the head of the Swedish Soccer Association.”
