The leftist politician stated that he thanked for the support in the evacuation of Brazilians who were in the country, which declared war on Hamas after the terrorist faction launched an attack on Israeli territory on Saturday (7), leaving about 1,200 dead.

"I reaffirmed Brazil's condemnation of terrorist attacks and our solidarity with the victims' families. I requested from the President all possible initiatives to ensure that there is no shortage of water, electricity, and medicine in hospitals," he wrote. The leftist politician said that Brazil wants to help in the search for a path to peace. "It is not possible for the innocent to be victims of the insanity of those who want war. I conveyed my appeal for a humanitarian corridor so that people who want to leave the Gaza Strip through Egypt can do so safely," he said.
