Statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Cuba condemns Israeli aggression against Palestine [Granma Internacional]

THE Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba is following with great concern the new escalation of violence and death which the actions of the Israeli armed forces are provoking in the Gaza Strip.

Once again, Israel is utilizing its technical and military superiority to brutally repress the Palestinian population, causing innocent civilian victims as well as enormous material damage, thus aggravating the already precarious living conditions of the population in this small and besieged territory.

In the face of this new aggression against the Palestinian people, Cuba reiterates its most energetic condemnation and calls on the international community to urgently take all measures necessary to halt this criminal act.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirms its most steadfast support for the just cause of the Palestinian people and their inalienable rights, which include the creation of an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Havana, November 16, 2012.
