Bolivian President Evo Morales on Thursday condemned Israel's attacks on Gaza, and said the US government should stop imposing aggressive policies in the Middle East.
"Something USimperialism does, through Israel, is this criminal invasion of Palestinian cities," Morales told reporters.
"Israel must change its policies and the US government should not continue using a country like Israel to invade countries that are seeking liberation," he said.
Morales also praised the opposition from many countries to Israel's air strikes against Gaza. He said the United Nations and the whole world should make joint efforts to stop the Israeli raids.
"The killings are not a solution in this new millennium, so Israel should stop being a tool of US imperialism to humiliate the Palestinian people," he said.
According to Palestinian sources, more than 400 people have been killed and some 2,000 others wounded in Gaza since Saturday when Israel launched attacks on the territory.
