The Castro dictatorship is not wavering in its support for Hamas and the Palestinian terrorist organization’s cowardly and savage attack on Israeli civilians last weekend. As Israel defends itself from murderous terrorists who are using Palestinian civilians as human shields in Gaza, Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Relations Ministry issued another attack on Israel, calling on the UN Security Council to punish the victims of the Hamas terrorist attack.
Another declaration from Havana calls for ‘putting an end to Israel’s impunity’ and labels the U.S. of being a historic accomplice
As tension escalates in the Gaza Strip, with orders for mass evacuation in anticipation of a possible ground incursion by the Israeli army in response to Hamas’ brutal attack just a week ago, the Havana regime has solidified its narrative in favor of the extremists who launched the aggression on October 7th.
This Saturday, state-run media propaganda disseminated a second statement calling for “an end to Israel’s impunity” and labeling the United States as a historical accomplice of the Jewish nation in this conflict, whose latest chapter left over 1,300 Israelis dead, the majority of whom were civilians, and over 2,200 in Gaza, including 724 children and 458 women.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba issued an urgent call for a ceasefire and immediate facilitation of humanitarian aid to Gaza. It asserted that the escalation of violence is “the consequence of decades of illegal Israeli practices of occupation and colonization, in flagrant violation of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in their own territory, as well as the prolonged disregard for the Purposes and Principles of the Charter of the United Nations and International Law, including numerous relevant resolutions of the UN.”
“The UN Security Council must fulfill its mandate and put an end to Israel’s impunity, the occupying power, of which the United States has historically been an accomplice, repeatedly obstructing and vetoing the action of the body, undermining peace, security, and regional stability,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba said in a call for the pursuit of a prompt solution through negotiation.
Cuba’s foreign ministry expressed its rejection of “the deaths of civilians and innocent people from all parties involved in this conflict, without distinguishing ethnicity, nationality, or religious faith” and condemned “the killings of civilians, especially women, children, and humanitarian workers from the United Nations system; as well as the indiscriminate bombings against the population in Gaza and the destruction of homes, hospitals, and civilian infrastructure, as well as the deprivation of water, electricity, and fuel services to the population of Gaza.”
The communist regime’s stance has been rejected by the Federation of Hebrew Communities of Cuba, which has stated that the events unfolding in Israel are “generated by acts of total terrorism” on the part of Hamas.
The group, considered a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union, among other nations, established from its founding in the late 1980s the path of armed struggle to achieve the destruction of Israel.
The Board of the House of the Hebrew Community of Cuba, based in Vedado, Havana, stated that justifying the recent “acts of crime and savagery” was unacceptable.
“The terrorism that has occurred since last Saturday in Israeli territory, which international media clearly demonstrate with videos shared by Hamas members who filmed how they coldly and with impunity killed children, young people, and the elderly indiscriminately, including more than 260 young people from various countries who were innocently sharing a large outdoor youth celebration in the southern area of Israel, seems to us totally unbalanced and lacking coherence,” states the pronouncement of Cuban Jews.
“It is no coincidence that the United Nations, the European Union, and countless countries condemn such acts of barbarism. We absolutely condemn every act of terrorism, and in this case, it clearly implies actions that violate every basic principle of human rights and human dignity itself,” the statement adds.
“We express our total support for the right to self-defense of the State of Israel and strongly condemn every act of terrorism,” concludes the statement from the Federation of Hebrew Communities of Cuba.
Escalation of the Conflict
In a speech delivered on Friday night, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised: “We will destroy Hamas” and said that “this is just the beginning.”
On the same day, it was reported that Israeli troops had initiated small incursions into Gaza. This was followed by numerous warnings from Israel to the Palestinians to flee to the south, while “Hamas urged people to stay in their homes,” according to an Associated Press dispatch.
“The United Nations and humanitarian groups have warned that such an exodus would cause unspeakable human suffering, and hospital patients and others would not be able to move. Families in cars, trucks, and donkey-drawn carts loaded with belongings crowded a main road heading south from Gaza City. Aerial attacks continued to hit the besieged small territory, where food, fuel, and potable water were beginning to run out under total Israeli siege. Egyptian officials said the Rafah crossing would open later on Saturday, for the first time in days, to allow foreigners to leave,” the agency reports.
This Saturday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian mentioned that a new front against Israel could gain strength from Lebanon, by the Lebanese group Hezbollah.
Amirabdollahian said he had met with Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: “I know all the possibilities that Hezbollah has raised (…) Any step taken by the resistance (Hezbollah) will cause a huge earthquake in the Zionist entity.”
