Cuba has charged the United States with supporting the Israeli regime in
their indiscriminate bombings of the Palestinian people. Yesterday Cuban
Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno issued Havana’s repudiation of the
attacks carried out by the Israeli regime in the last two days, which have
caused at least 48 deaths in Gaza, 14 of whom were children, according to
the Gaza Ministry of Health.

“Cuba vigorously condemns the indiscriminate bombardments by Israel against
the Palestinian population of Gaza,” Rodriguez wrote in his Twitter
account.  The head of International Relations for Cuba also denounced the
“consistent support of the United States for these crimes” perpetrated by
the Zionist nation against the blockaded population of Gaza.

The Gaza Strip, a zone called by some as “the largest prison in the world”
since its almost two million inhabitants are prevented from receiving food,
fuel, and medical supplies by the Israeli blockade, was the target Tuesday
of a fierce aerial bombardment directed against civilian structures,
including homes.

In addition, in the occupied city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) at least 500
Palestinians were wounded by the Israeli repression of the protests against
the profanation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the prohibition of Palestinian
access to this site, one of the three most sacred Islamic sites.

In international forums, Cuba has always expressed repudiation of the
Israeli aggression in Palestine and has denounced the role played by the US
in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In this regard, Havana has rejected
the so-called “Deal of the Century” crafted by the previous U.S.
administration, and has warned that that the process of normalizing
diplomatic relations with Israel constitutes a serious violation of the
rights of the Palestinians.

This new wave of violence was provoked and fanned by the restrictions
imposed by the Israeli regime on Palestinian access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
located in the Trans-Jordan city of Al-Quds, and by the announcement of the
expulsion of the Palestinian residents of the neighborhood of Sheikh
Jarrah, to be replaced with Israeli colonizers.  However, the spark that
has generated the cross-fire of rockets between Israel and the Palestinian
Resistance was the Israeli repression against the Palestinians in Al-Quds
on Monday.

The Palestinian resistance had been issuing warnings about the hostile acts
of the Israelis against Palestinian civilians.  Nevertheless, the Israeli
aggressions against Palestinians did not cease and they continued their
attacks against the demonstrators in Al-Aqsa, in addition to carrying out
air attacks against the Gaza Strip.  Among these attacks were the Israeli
Air force bombings of Palestinian homes in Beit Hanun, in Gaza, on Monday,
an attack that caused a number of deaths.  In addition to that, a night
aerial bombing by the Tel Aviv regime on Tuesday caused the total
destruction of a 13 story building in the Gaza Strip.  In retaliation,
Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, as well as the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad have launched hundreds of missiles against the
occupied territories, including the heart of Tel Aviv.
