The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, presided over the act of solidarity with Palestine, which in the capital José Martí Anti-Imperialist Tribune brought together hundreds of people to demand an end to Israel's genocide against the Palestinian people, reported the News Agency Prensa Latina.

The mobilization took place in provincial capitals across the country, under the slogans Hands off Rafah, Ceasefire now, and End the genocide.

Convened by the Union of Young Communists (UJC) and other social organizations, Cubans staged massive acts of solidarity with Palestine throughout the country and to demand an end to the Israeli genocide.

The mobilizations in the Caribbean nation, as in the rest of the world, come in the face of the announcement of Israel's new offensive against the city of Rafat, which is home to more than a million Palestinians.

From early hours, especially in the provincial capitals, and in the case of Havana, at the José Martí Anti-Imperialist Tribune, Cubans raised their voices for the Palestinian people.

President Miguel Díaz-Canel assured the day before that Cuba will never be indifferent to crime and today Cubans march for peace, together with the peoples who fight for a better possible world.

Enough of brutality, enough of abuse, enough of impunity, the head of state stressed in a video posted on his account on the social network X.

Díaz-Canel denounced that five months ago humanity has been watching in horror a new holocaust because the Gaza Strip, the largest open-air prison in the world, is becoming an extermination camp under Israel's criminal and incessant orderly bombardment.

The president also called for an end to the hypocrisy of the United States that vetoes ceasefire resolutions in the United Nations Security Council, while his government acts as an accomplice of barbarism with its unscrupulous and undemocratic exercise of the veto.

He denounced Washington as undermining peace and stability in the Middle East and, by extension, in the entire world.

Amid international condemnation and in complicity with the United States, Israel killed more than 30,000 Palestinians after 147 days of crimes, bombings, siege and genocide in the Gaza Strip.

Cuba advocated peace in those territories on the basis of the creation of two States, which would enable 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.
