The Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday it regrets Jordan’s decision to recall its ambassador to Israel back to Amman.

“Israel regrets the Jordanian government's decision to recall its ambassador for consultations,” said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lior Haiat.

“The State of Israel is focused on the war imposed on it by the murderous terrorist attack by Hamas, a terrorist organization that massacred 1400 Israelis and kidnapped 240 women, children, babies and the elderly. Israel is targeting the terrorists of Hamas and the terrorist infrastructure of this organization, which uses the civilians of the Gaza Strip as human shields,” he added.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi announced earlier in the day that he had recalled Ambassador Rasan al-Majali in an expression of the Jordanian government's position against what it calls "the Israeli war that is raging against and the killing of innocents which is causing an unprecedented humanitarian disaster."

Safadi proclaimed that the ambassador to Israel would return on the condition that Israel "stops the war in Gaza and the humanitarian disaster that it's causing."

On Tuesday, Bolivia's government said it had broken diplomatic ties with Israel and accused Israel of committing crimes against humanity in its attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Later in the day, Chilean President Gabriel Boric said the country was recalling its ambassador to Israel for consultations, citing Israeli “violations of international humanitarian law” in the Gaza Strip.

"Chile strongly condemns and observes with great concern... these military operations," Boric wrote in a post on social media platform X.

Shortly thereafter, Colombian President Gustavo Petro said on X that his country has recalled its ambassador to Israel over its war in Gaza.

"I have decided to recall our ambassador to Israel. If Israel does not stop the massacre of the Palestinian people we cannot stay there," he wrote.
