I look forward to increased police patrols in the vicinity of mosques across the nation during Ramadan.”

Th opposition leader acknowledged the challenges faced globally, particularly the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. Persad-Bissessar said, “The ongoing bloody conflict between Israel and Palestine, marked by destructive Israeli military attacks in the Gaza Strip have led to the deaths of about 30,800 and counting, as of this weekend.

It has also left 85% of Gaza’s population internally displaced, with shortages of food, clean water, and medicine. I have called on the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to use our current United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) leadership to demand a stop to the decimation of Palestine.”

Persad-Bissessar sends warm wishes to the Muslim community, praying for Allah’s protection and social harmony for all.
