The United States and a number of Western countries have recognized Guaido, the head of the National Assembly, as Venezuela's president.
"They have to let the aid in because people are dying from lack of medicine", said 72-year-old Armida Quintana, who stood on a plastic stool to see above crowds of thousands, many wearing Venezuelan flags as capes. US President Donald Trump's administration has been pushing for the global community - including Israel - to back President Nicolas Maduro's ouster.
Maduro's predecessor, Hugo Chavez, shunned Israel over its 2008-2009 war in Gaza, and fostered ties with the Palestinians as well as with Israel's arch-foe Iran.
Maduro has remained defiant in the face of domestic and global pressure.
Later on Tuesday, Guaido shared a selfie taken at anti-government protests on his Twitter account. "We are and will continue to be on the streets!" "First we'll restore the relations, then we'll announce the appointment of an ambassador to Israel, and we very much hope an envoy will come here from Israel".

Maduro also rallied supporters at rival demonstrations following more than a month of pressure led by opposition lawmaker Juan Guaido, who has proclaimed himself the country's legitimate president. "On Saturday, big assemblies, open town councils in all Venezuela will get organized". "In due time, I will declare the renewed ties and the placement of the embassy".

"This (Jewish) community is very active and prosperous, one which has contributed greatly to our society", Guaido said in the interview. "I assume they are happy we are renewing ties with Israel". "There are nearly two million at health risk", said Guaido, recognised as Venezuela's interim leader by 50 countries.
Venezuela's opposition has called its supporters into the streets across the country in a campaign to break the military's support of President Nicolas Maduro, who refuses to let emergency food and medicine from the United States across the border.
As well as the Vatican, Norway, another traditional worldwide mediator, has also offered to help with dialogue.
