Juan Cabandié criticized Israel and received harsh questions from relatives of the AMIA victims


The Minister of the Environment questioned an anti-terrorist operation in that country and spoke of 'murders'. As an argument, he cited a note from the Venezuelan network Telesur. The opinion of the Embassy.

This Thursday, while the Israeli special forces deactivated a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv amid the new escalation of violence between Palestinians and Israelis, Juan Cabandié wrote a tweet, which in addition to exceeding his duties as Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, presented a controversial version of the facts and also distorted.

His actions received criticism on the networks and from the relatives of the AMIA victims.

"Israeli forces killed 6 Palestinians in a refugee camp in the West Bank, adding more than 40 Palestinians killed in 2023. The Israeli occupation and attack must end and the Palestinian people's right to self-determination must be enshrined," Cabandié said, also

posting an article from the Telesurtv network, which finances the regime of Nicolás Maduro, an ally of the Hamas group and Iran.


consulted this Friday at the Israeli embassy what opinion they had about Cabandié's tweet. 

Ambassador Eyal Sela and his team are engaged in preparations for the new

anniversary next Friday of the terrorist attack on said diplomatic headquarters on March 17, 1992 (29 dead).

After noon, spokespersons for the headquarters replied as follows: "

The Israeli embassy regrets the death of the brothers Yagel and Hilel Yaniv, aged 19 and 21, who were killed by a terrorist who fired at them indiscriminately (by the settlers who gave rise to to the episode that ended in the fall of the six Palestinians, R.), with no other intention than to cause chaos and death just a few days ago".

At the headquarters they added: "

The State of Israel, like any country that defends the lives of its inhabitants,

commits its efforts to prevent this type of purely terrorist actions from continuing to take the lives of innocent people. We have no further comments." . 

The episode of the Israeli incursion into the West Bank referred to by Cabandié and the Venezuelan network did indeed occur.

But it is more complex than the vision that both present, literally as

"massacre in a Palestinian camp."

This week at least six Palestinians were killed in a raid by the Israeli army in Jenin, according to the Europa Press chain, citing the Palestinian Authority.

It reported that the military was seeking to arrest the main suspect in killing two Jewish settlers at the end of February and that he would be among those killed.

The episode occurs in the midst of a tightening of ties between Israelis and Palestinians for reasons on both sides, among them also because of the latter's rejection of the hardening of the positions of the new far-right coalition headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, and which was answered by a wave of terrorist acts on the part of the Palestinians.

Without going any further, almost simultaneously with Cabandié's tweet, one person died and two others were injured this Thursday by

shots near a cafe in Tel Aviv, in Israel.

The police said that the assailant was killed by uniformed officers and armed civilians, and that he was "a 23-year-old Palestinian terrorist who shot three innocent civilians" and that "unfortunately, one of the wounded was pronounced dead."

The positions of Minister Cabandié, who originally belongs to the La Cámpora organization, where however today he is almost an "outsider", are usually similar to those of the Nation's Secretary of Human Rights, Horacio Pietragalla, who has had unilateral positions in favor of of the Palestinians in a conflict that must be dealt with by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship.

By the way, the government recently also condemned the occupation of the West Bank in a joint statement with Mexico, Brazil and Chile, whose administrations are critical of Israel's actions in the Middle East conflict.

AMIA's family critics

This Friday, Luis Czyzewski and Ana María Blugerman, parents of Paola Czyzewski, who died in the terrorist attack against the AMIA headquarters on July 18, 1994, issued a letter of repudiation of what the Environment Minister said.

"Mr. Juan Cabandié, you mention the MURDER of six Palestinians by Israel, deliberately omitting to mention that these people were TERRORISTS who killed Israeli civilians. This shows which side you are on," the text begins.

"Query: Regarding the AMIA Attack: Are you on the side of the victims or on the side of the terrorists who murdered 85 people? We would like to know," they conclude with their signature.
