Cuban President warns of Israeli onslaught over Rafah

Havana, May 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz Canel warned on Tuesday of the new massacre being conducted by the Zionist Israeli Government in its onslaught against the Palestinian Rafah City in southern Gaza.

On X, the Cuban leader denounced from Moscow – where he is on a working visit – that the genocide in the Gaza Strip continues despite the worldwide clamor demanding its end.

The criminal Government of Israel is targeting Rafah where 1.5 million civilians are accumulating. New massacre is coming against the Palestinians in front of the eyes of the world. Israel and the United States will be condemned by history, he said in his message.

Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez further warned on Tuesday of the unprecedented cost to the suffering Palestinian population if the Israeli offensive into southern Gaza continues.

Such an action, he posted on X, would have unprecedented costs for the suffering population and would lead to the displacement of thousands of Palestinians.

According to media sources, Israeli occupation forces took control of the Palestinian side of the crossing to the city of Rafah, disrupting the movement of people and humanitarian aid into the enclave.

The Israeli war cabinet decided to continue its invasion of the Palestinian territory that serves as a refuge for thousands of civilians displaced by indiscriminate shelling and ground incursions in northern Gaza.

Since October 7, the aggression of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Government has resulted in the deaths of almost 35,000 people, mostly children, women and the elderly, as well as the almost total destruction of infrastructure in the north of occupied Palestine.
