The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in Parliament has demanded the closure of the South African embassy in Israel. According to EWN, Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) Candith Mashego-Dlamini mentioned that the government is still considering this move, carefully weighing the potential impact on humanitarian aid to Gaza.
The EFF’s call to sever diplomatic ties with Israel until it complies with international law has found support from some political parties. In contrast, others are concerned about the possible repercussions on South Africa’s role in peace efforts.
