On this same day, the ParlaSur representative, Erika Hilton, proposed to the Southern Common Market (Mercosur) that it suspend the agreements with Israel, as a means of pressure to stop the siege on the people of Palestine.

The letter signed by 61 Brazilian parliamentarians, which was presented during an event in the Chamber of Deputies, requests President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to summon the Brazilian ambassador to Israel, Frederico Meyer, imitating the action already taken by Chile, Colombia and Honduras.

“We ask the Brazilian government to call the Brazilian ambassador to Israel for consultations and not to promulgate the military and security cooperation agreements signed by (former president Jair) Bolsonaro with Israel,” the text mentions.

The letter recalled a resolution passed by a large majority of United Nations (UN) member countries to demand an urgent ceasefire, "but Israel has declared that it has no intention of stopping and has intensified attacks against the Palestinian people." .

Representative Jandira Feghali highlighted the need to show a tougher position towards Israel, although she clarified that this will happen once the Brazilians who are in Gaza are evacuated.

More than 30 Brazilians and family members still remain in the south of the Gaza Strip, waiting for them to leave that territory.

In the session that took place in the Chamber of Deputies, the Palestinian ambassador to Brazil, Ibrahim Alzaben, gave a speech in the plenary session, where he assured that “the independence and liberation of the Palestinian people are closer than ever.”
