Colombia halts coal sales to Israel in protest against Gaza war

0 minutes, 31 seconds Read

Petro, Colombia's first leftist president and a fierce critic of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said on X on Saturday that coal exports to Israel would remain suspended “until the genocide stops.”

A government order specified that these restrictions would continue “until the provisional measures order issued by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) are fully complied with.”

In late May, as part of a pending case brought by South Africa, the ICJ ordered Israel to halt its assault on the southern Gaza city of Rafah, while also demanding the release of hostages and the “uninterrupted provision” of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian territory.
