Díaz-Canel was escorted by the principal figures in Cuba, including Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, while sporting a black-and-white Palestinian keffiyeh scarf.

After walking 2 kilometers (1.2 miles), the protestors passed in front of the American embassy. Joining the demonstration were Palestinian medical students on a cooperative program in Cuba.

Physical culture expert Yanquiel Cardoso stated, “Today we are supporting the Palestinian people, supporting all those people who feel the pain of having lost a family member, a loved one due to this massacre.” “We demand Palestine’s freedom as well as a ceasefire.”

A lot of young individuals carried posters that said, “Free Palestine,” along with ugly pictures of kids hurt by bombs or flags that identified Palestinians and Cubans.

The 26-year-old Palestinian medical student Sami Sabala of Havana said, “This march means a lot to us.” It arouses emotions… Additionally, it gives the impression that Palestine is not alone.

On October 7, Hamas terrorists invaded southern Israel, murdering over 1,200 people and capturing approximately 240 others before escorting them to Gaza, sparking the commencement of the conflict. Over 13,300 Palestinians have been killed and extensive damage has been wrought in the closed-off enclave of Gaza by Israel’s devastating aerial, ground, and naval operation.

This is the second time Cuba’s senior officials have taken part in solidarity demonstrations since the start of the conflict. The most famous landmark in the capital of the Caribbean, the José Martí monument, had the Palestinian flag projected on it last week.
