The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, said on Tuesday that humanity must stand up against Israel’s genocide of the Palestinian people.

Maduro made his comment while hosting the Palestinian Ambassador to Caracas, Fadi Al-Zaben, on Tuesday’s edition of the “Maduro and More” television program.

“Women and children are being killed in a horrific manner,” he said.

Venezuela: Israel ‘Wants to Exterminate the Palestinian People’

Maduro has repeatedly reiterated his call for an end to the genocide carried out against the Palestinian people by Israel.

“We must demand, with one voice, an end to the genocide against the Palestinian people,” the Bolivarian leader stated on October 31, adding:

“I implore the world to raise their voices and put a stop to the extermination and violence against the Palestinian people.”

Israel has, thus far, killed over 10,569, including 4,324 children and 2,823 women, and wounded 26,475 wounded. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
