Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva reiterated, Friday, his characterization of the Israeli Occupation's military campaign in the Gaza Strip as a "genocide."

He expressed his support for the establishment of a free and sovereign Palestinian state, stating, "I am in favor of the creation of a free and sovereign Palestinian state."

Lula emphasized the severity of the situation, stating, "What Israel is doing is not a war, it is genocide because it is killing women and children."

He further highlighted the devastating impact on civilians, particularly children, stating, "It is a genocide. Thousands of children are dead and thousands are missing. Soldiers are not dying. Women and children are dying at the hospital."

"If that's not genocide, I don't know what genocide is," he added.
