Israel has suspended ties with those nations that condemned their illegal settlements.

The curbing of diplomatic ties, reported by CNN, comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s vow last week to exact a “diplomatic and economic price” from the countries on the UN Security Council that passed the resolution, 14-0.


Those countries included Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan and Spain. The impact of the move was not immediately clear, but Netanyahu over the weekend recalled the ambassadors for 10 of the countries involved.
