Nicaragua breaks ties with Israel

Nicaragua cut off diplomatic ties with Israel on June 1 in protest of Israel’s deadly raid on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla. “Nicaragua suspends from today its diplomatic relations with the government of Israel,” said first lady Rosario Murillo who also serves as communications chief for President Daniel Ortega. She added that Managua “underscored the illegal nature of the attack on a humanitarian mission in clear violation of international and humanitarian law.”
