Colombia to Halt Coal Exports to Israel amid Onslaught on Gaza

Bogota, MINA – Colombian President Gustavo Petro announced on Saturday that his country would halt its exports of coal to Israel as the offensive on the Gaza Strip continues, Wafa reports.

Taking to his X account, the Colombian president wrote, “We will stop our coal exports to Israel until the massacre ends.”

Last May, the Colombian president declared the severance of diplomatic ties with Israel, citing “a government and prime minister inclined towards genocide.”
