Member of Hamas Political Bureau, Basim Naim, congratulated freedom fighter, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, on his victory in Brazil's election after defeating his rival, incumbent Jair Bolsonaro, in a fiercely contested run-off election.

The Hamas official considered da Silva's election a victory for all oppressed people around the globe, particularly the Palestinian people, as da Silva is known for his strong and continued support for the Palestinians at all international forums.

Naim said that Hamas "looks forward to President Lula mitigating all the effects of the unlimited support for the Israeli Occupation State".
