Colombian President Gustavo Petro said on Wednesday he will break diplomatic relations with Israel over its actions in Gaza. 

Petro has already heavily criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and requested to join South Africa's case accusing Israel of genocide at the International Court of Justice. 

The announcement by the Colombian president will have no consequences on the bilateral plan.
