Colombia says it will take in wounded Palestinian children for treatment

The government of Colombia, a fierce critic of Israel, says it will receive injured Palestinian children and provide them with medical care.

“We have taken the decision to provide humanitarian support to Palestinian children who will travel with their families to Colombia for rehabilitation,” Colombian Deputy Minister of Multilateral Affairs Elizabeth Taylor Jay announces.

She is speaking in Stockholm, where she was on a state visit with Colombian President Gustavo Petro.

Jay does not say how many children will be taken in by Colombia, nor how they would be removed from war-torn Gaza.

Last month, Colombia announced it was severing ties with Israel and opening an embassy in Ramallah.
