Workers' Cause Party of Brazil renews support for Palestinian resistance

Tehran, IRNA -- The president of Brazil’s Workers' Cause Party has met with senior Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, renewing support for the right of Palestinian resistance to fight the Israeli occupation.

Rui Costa Pimenta met with Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, on Monday, Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen news channel reported.

The two officials discussed the latest developments in the Israeli was on Gaza, the report said.

Hamas said in a statement that the two officials stressed the need for a cessation of Israeli hostilities, urgent humanitarian aid for Palestinians and reconstruction of Gaza.

The Brazilian official also underscored the right of Palestinians to mount resistance against the Zionist occupiers and force them out of their land.

The Hamas leader thanked Workers' Cause Party of Brazil for supporting the Palestinian resistance, including by organizing events in which Palestinian and Hamas flags are raised.

Tensions have soared between Brazil and the Israeli regime after Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva compared the Israeli “genocide” of Palestinians in Gaza to what Adolf Hitler did during World War II.

Speaking at a recent African Union summit in Ethiopia, Lula said what was unfolding in Gaza was not a conventional war, but a war between a "highly prepared army and women and children".
