Israel recalls ambassador from EU country --The Spanish prime minister has questioned the legality of the war on Gaza | 30 Nov 2023 | The Israeli Foreign Ministry announced on Thursday it was recalling its ambassador in Madrid, Rodica Radian-Gordon, for consultations after comments made by the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez about the war on Hamas. The Spanish ambassador in Tel Aviv was also summoned for a protest. Speaking with the Spanish broadcaster TVE, Sanchez said he had "serious doubt" that Israel was in compliance with international humanitarian law while waging war on the Palestinian group, given the imagery coming from the enclave and the "growing numbers of children dying." "Because of the outrageous remarks by the Spanish prime minister, who again repeated baseless claims, I have decided to summon the Israeli ambassador in Spain for consultations in Jerusalem," Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said on X.
