The Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva sent an official plane to evacuate people from the Gaza Strip who had even remote connection or relatives in Brazil.
Lula then also personally went to greet them at the Brasilia Air Base and embraced them very warmly.
His government managed to rescue 32 nationals from the Gaza Strip following a month of negotiations.
The Brazilians crossed the Rafah border between Gaza and Egypt on Sunday and were taken to Cairo where on Monday morning they boarded an Embraer presidential airplane loaned by Lula and traveled to Brazil via Las Palmas, Spain.
Lula greeted passengers with hugs and kisses after their arrival late on Monday evening, offering his support to Brazilians still in or arriving from the Gaza Strip and condemning the killing of civilians in Gaza.
“I have never seen such brutal, inhumane violence against innocent people,” Lula said in a short speech on the tarmac.
The flight was the 10th in an operation launched by the South American Country last month to repatriate citizens in Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip after a war broke out in the region last month.
