Since last October 8, more than 11,000 people have been murdered in Gaza and the West Bank, of which almost half are children. In turn, more than 1.5 million have had to flee their homes due to the bombings, while the destruction of civil and health infrastructure is causing a true humanitarian catastrophe. The State of Israel is committing a massacre against the Palestinian people, with the endorsement of the United States and the European powers, among other supports, among which in Argentina are that of Javier Milei and Sergio Massa.
