The Government of Belize has announced that it will suspend diplomatic ties with Israel over its refusal to implement a ceasefire in Gaza.
Belize has joined several other countries in the Western Hemisphere voicing anger over the Israeli government's war conduct.
The Central American nation has also withdrawn its accreditation for Israel's ambassador there, and suspended its own diplomatic activities in Tel Aviv.
Belize follows regional neighbors, Colombia, Chile, and Bolivia, that have severed diplomatic ties or recalled ambassadors to Israel.
A number of other countries, including Turkey, Jordan, and South Africa, have also recalled ambassadors in recent weeks.
Israel declared war on Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that controls Gaza, and launched a "complete siege" of the enclave following a terrorist attack in Israel on October 7.
Since then, Israeli attacks have killed more than 11,000 Palestinians, including thousands of children.
