Cuba warns of aftermaths of Israel’s offensive in Rafah

Havana, May 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez warned on Tuesday that with the military offensive in Rafah, Israel is ramping up its acts of genocide against the Palestinian people.

Rodriguez denounced on X that Israel’s crime is only possible because of the complicity and military and logistical support of the U.S. Government.

The Cubano diplomat stressed that the creation of the State of Palestine is the only fair and lasting solution to this conflict.

On Tuesday, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) warned that nearly 450,000 people have left Rafah in the last week ‘fleeing wherever they can, even into the rubble and sand dunes.’

Israeli troops occupied the Rafah crossing nine days ago, which for the past seven months has been the only gateway to Gaza for food, medicine and fuel.

The army then cut the city in two as part of its offensive against Hamas, amid fierce international criticism for fear of a large-scale massacre among civilians.
