Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to announce on Tuesday that Israel will suspend all development aid to the African nation of Angola following the latter’s support of a recent UN resolution condemning Israeli West Bank construction.

This is the latest in a series of retaliatory, diplomatic measures against those who went against the Jewish State. Angola is one of 14 countries who supported the anti-Israel resolution.

Angolan diplomats promised Israel that they would abstain from voting on the resolution, but decided to go against their word.

Additionally, when being called in to clarify his country’s actions during a meeting at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, the Ambassador decided to park illegally, and was given a parking ticket from the municipality.

The Israeli Prime Minister also told his cabinet that he will not meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May on the sidelines of the Davos economic forum which will be taking place in January. He also ordered his cabinet members not to go to countries which supported the anti-Israel resolution, and ordered his ministers not to meet with their counterparts from these countries.

Netanyahu ordered the Israeli ambassadors to New Zealand and Senegal to come back to Israel in retaliation for those two countries’ efforts in promoting the bill. All aid, including security aid, has been stopped to Senegal. The west African Muslim has had repeated issues with al-Qaeda.
