RAMALLAH, November 27, 2016 (WAFA – PLO news agency) – President Mahmoud
Abbas Sunday ordered flags to be flown at half mast to mourn the death of
the Cuban revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro, who died on Friday at the age
of 90.

To be noted, ‘Castro broke off Cuba’s diplomatic ties [with] Israel in 1973
and was one of the first countries to recognize the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) after its founding in 1964’.

In 2014, ‘Castro signed an international pro-Palestine manifesto which
demanded that Israel respect United Nations resolutions’.

‘This included the withdrawal of all Israeli troops and settlers from the
occupied Palestinian territories in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem’.
