Brazil’s Lula Recalls Amb. to “Israeli” Entity Amid Gaza Conflict
Lula called Brazil’s Ambassador Frederico Meyer home after months of tensions between Brasilia and the “Israeli” entity over the genocidal campaign the entity has waged in the Palestinian territory since October 7, 2023, Brazil’s official gazette reported on Wednesday.

Meyer has been transferred to the Swiss city of Geneva to join Brazil's permanent mission to the United Nations and other international organizations.

Lula, who is an outspoken critic of “Israel’s” war in Gaza, said on February that “what is happening in the Gaza Strip and to the Palestinian people hasn’t been seen in any other moment in history. Actually, it did when Hitler decided to kill the Jews.”

The move is a diplomatic downgrade between the “Israeli” entity and Brazil, whose embassy in the occupying entity is currently without an ambassador in the post.

Earlier this month, Colombia’s President Gustavo Petro broke diplomatic relations between Bogota and Tel Aviv, after he suspended purchases of weapons from the entity.

Petro had previously compared that the entity’s appalling actions in Gaza to those of Nazi Germany.

The apartheid “Israeli” entity launched the barbarous campaign in Gaza after Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory operation into the occupied territories.

Concomitantly with the war, the entity has been enforcing a near-total siege on the coastal territory, which has reduced the flow of foodstuffs, medicine, electricity and water into the Palestinian territory into a trickle.

The “Israeli” entity has martyred over 36,000 people, most of them women, children and adolescents in Gaza since that October day.
