Cuba reaffirms solidarity with Palestinian people

Havana, Jun 20 (Prensa Latina) The Secretary of Organization of the Communist Party, Roberto Morales, on Thursday repeated Cuba's solidarity with Palestine, on the occasion of the World Refugee Day. On his X account, Morales demanded an end to genocide and ratified Cuba's support 'for the heroic Palestinian people, deprived of their own land and now atrociously massacred in Gaza.'

According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, at least 5.9 million Palestinian refugees live on the occupied territories or in other countries.

About 2.5 million of them are displaced in the West Bank (15 percent) and the Gaza Strip (27 percent), accounting for 42 percent of the total.

Since the beginning of Israel’s aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7, the death toll in the coastal enclave has risen to more than 35,000.

Cuba calls for peace on these territories on the basis of the creation of two states, which would allow the people of Palestine to exercise their right to self-determination and to have an independent and sovereign state within the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
