Cuban President expresses indignation over Israeli massacre in Gaza

Havana, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel today expressed pain and indignation over the genocide of the Zionist state of Israel against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.

In his profile on X social media, the Cuban leader wrote: “It hurts deeply #Palestine. The impunity of those who mercilessly bombard their people is outrageous.”

Diaz-Canel today led a rally that brought together thousands of Havana citizens to the Jose Marti Anti-Imperialist Tribune, in front of the U.S. Embassy, to demand an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and denounce Washington’s complicity in the massacre.

At the event, attended by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, Vice President Salvador Valdes and other top leaders, multi Paralympic champion Omara Durán reaffirmed the solidarity of Cuban women and people with Palestine.

She denounced that the Israeli aggression has claimed the lives of more than 30,000 people in the Gaza Strip since last October 7, and threatens to extend to the city of Rafah, where more than one and a half million civilians displaced by the war are taking refuge.

She pointed out that among the dead in Gaza there are some 8,800 women and 13,230 minors, including babies only a few months or years old.

The sportswoman said that Cuba is and will continue to be consistent with its history and principles, and will never be indifferent to a crime as atrocious as the one being repeated today in the Gaza Strip.

We demand the cessation of the Israeli genocide, which with the complicity of the United States undermines peace, security and stability in the region and the world, he said.

At the event, Palestinian students in Cuba also condemned the genocide against the civilian population of their country, denounced Washington’s complicity in the massacre, and demanded an end to the Zionist aggression.

Demonstrations in support of Palestine are taking place simultaneously in all of Cuba’s provincial capitals and other cities.
