South African Government Mocked for Calling on Israel to Withdraw Troops From Gaza

 

The South African government became a laughing stock on Twitter on Thursday after it called on Israel to withdraw from the Gaza Strip, even though it already did so in 2005.

Israel unilaterally pulled all its soldiers and residents out of Gaza in 2005, nearly four decades after it took control of the coastal enclave from Egypt during the 1967 Six-Day War. Gaza is now ruled by the Hamas terrorist group, which has fought several wars against Israel over the past decade.

On Thursday morning, South Africa issued several tweets citing harsh government criticism of the Jewish state’s response to last week’s Hamas-orchestrated riot on the Israeli-Gaza border in which more than 60 Palestinians — mostly terrorists — were killed.

“Cabinet condemned in the strongest terms the acts of violent aggression carried out by Israeli armed forces along the Gaza border, which led to the deaths of a large number of civilians,” read one.
