“Bolivarianism cannot remain silent in the face of injustice,” highlighted the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, when denouncing that there is a massacre and massive violation of the rights to life of the Palestinian people:
“We demand a ceasefire and for negotiations to be established based on the United Nations agreements (…) for the resolutions of the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly to be respected,” he said.
During the reopening of the Birthplace of the Liberator and the Bolivarian Museum, located in the Historic Caracas Downtown, the Head of State and Government ratified that Venezuela advocates peace in the Gaza Strip:
“In the face of every massacre of the Palestinian people, Venezuela has been on the front line of solidarity,” emphasized Maduro, while calling for an end to the bombings in the area.
The Venezuelan President recalled that the United Nations (UN) in 1967 established rulings for the establishment of two States (Palestine and Israel), a decision of mandatory compliance that has been violated by all the Governments of Israel.
Along these lines, he called on Christians, Muslims and Jews in the world to demand compliance with the agreements established at the UN:
“My call as a Christian continues to be to the Muslim peoples, to the Arab peoples, to the Christian peoples of the world, to the Jewish people, to my Jewish grandparents I make the call: Stop the massacre of the Palestinian people, we want peace, we want equality. We want agreement, we want two States, we want respect for the lives of the peoples,” he concluded.
After six days of escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that the number of deaths in the Gaza Strip amounts to 1,537; while the injured rise to 7,212.
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the number of displaced people from Gaza has risen to 338,934.
Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the UN, António Guterres, spoke on the social network: “We need rapid and unhindered humanitarian access now,” he said.
