The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa cancelled his trip to Israel, scheduled for later this year, in the aftermath of Israel's 28 day offensive in the Gaza Strip.

"We must continue to denounce this genocide" he said in an interview with a local news agency, clarifying the cancellation is in response to Israel's policies vis-a-vis Gaza.

The decision comes after Ecuador recalled its ambassador from Israel, as Operation Protective Edge heightened.
