Bomb splinters also killed Brazilian businessman Rodrigo Aiman, 34, on Monday evening.
The ministry stated that the government received the news with deep consternation. and Brazil increased its disapproval of the Israeli act.
It said Israel's disproportional military retaliation has caused the deaths of innocents and severely damaged the Lebanese infra-structure to long-term consequences for the civilian population. It added stated that Brazil supports diplomatic intervention in the conflict area, especially through the UN High Level Mission.
The number of Brazilian fatalities have raised to six since the beginning of the strikes in Lebanon.
