IP- The Palestinian Foreign Ministry has criticized Peru for allowing its citizens to fight with the Israeli army in its war on Gaza.

Iran Press/ West Asia: This statement followed Peru’s condolences for a soldier killed during the war.

In a tweet on its official account, Peru’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday: “The Peruvian government regrets the death of Yuval Lopez, a Peruvian-Israeli citizen who served as a reservist in the Israeli Defense Forces”.

Palestine, in its statement, interpreted Peru’s acknowledgement as “permitting its citizens to participate in the genocide committed by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people in Gaza”.

The Palestinian ministry said it expected Peru to “revoke the citizenship of its citizens who hold Israeli citizenship and are involved in the conflict, instead of offering condolences after their deaths and praising them”.

Palestine considered “these times crucial in determining countries’ actual positions on humanity, commitment to international law, and humanitarian law”.
