Guyana condemns Gaza violence

Guyana's President has become the first Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leader to publicly condemn Israel's military action against the Palestinian people.

President Bharrat Jagdeo, in a statement released by the Government Information Agency on the escalation of the crisis between Israel and Palestine last night, said he has been following with grave concern the events that have unfolded at the Gaza strip, and to him, it seems to be a form of sanctioned genocide.

"The Jewish people have suffered much over the years through persecution and the disproportionate use of force, and of all peoples, should understand the plight of the Palestinian people," he said. "Guyana condemns absolutely the atrocities being perpetrated against the people of Palestine especially the murder of innocent women and children."
