What is taking place in Gaza is a genocide, Colombian President says


Bogotá, Colombian President, Gustavo Petro, has affirmed that the Israeli entity is committing a genocide against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, calling for an immediate ceasefire there.

In a post on X platform, President Petro supported the statements issued by Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva that what is taking place in Gaza is a genocide.

He added that his Brazilian counterpart told the truth which must be defended, otherwise ‘barbarism will destroy us.’
