Bolivarian Government to Undertake Humanitarian Actions in Gaza Strip

The Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Nicolas Maduro announced that the Bolivarian government will establish an airlift to send humanitarian aid to thousand Palestinian victims affected by Israel ’s military raid on the Gaza Strip.

During an event for the Simón Bolívar campaign that took place on Monday in the Teresa Carreño Theater, in Caracas , Maduro announced that “the Venezuelan government has decided to start a humanitarian airlift, together with the Arab and Muslim community and other Latin American countries, to supply medicines, food, drinking water, and milk, among other items.”

In this sense, the Venezuelan foreign affairs minister said that the Venezuelan State is establishing contact with different humanitarian organizations of the world, as well as other governments in the Middle East , to help the Palestinian people.

The Bolivarian government issued a press release to express its “solidarity with the Palestinian people,” and its “deep indignation” at “the Israel ’s criminal attack against Gaza .” It also urged “the United Nations Organization to exert its authority and apply the numerous resolutions adopted in favor of the Palestinian people and against the state violence practiced by the government of Israel .”

Venezuela took its stand and expressed that “this is the only way to guarantee a lasting peace and the end of these facts, which are absolutely against the United Nations Charter and other international norms.”
