The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Saturday that it would summon the ambassadors from the Security Council member countries that voted in favor of granting full United Nations membership to the Palestinians. This diplomatic move highlights the intensifying tensions surrounding the Palestinian bid for international recognition.

The nations whose ambassadors are set to be summoned include France, Japan, South Korea, Malta, Slovakia, and Ecuador. According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, the meeting scheduled for Sunday will involve a stern protest against these countries' decision to support Palestinian membership at the UN.

The Israeli government's decision to summon the ambassadors is indicative of its strong opposition to the UN vote. 

The Ministry's statement on X (formerly Twitter) underscores the seriousness with which Israel views this development, as it believes such moves could further complicate the peace process.
