Mouseup events are not working inside Swiper

I’m using Swiper to show some slides, and I have some events that run on mouseup, but they are not working with Swiper. When I click the swiper container nothing happens.

You can see it in this example, the alert doesn’t work:

document.body.addEventListener('mouseup', () => { alert('mouseup'); });

const swiper = new Swiper('.swiper-container', {
  direction: 'horizontal',
  pagination: {
    el: '.swiper-pagination',
.swiper-container {
  width: 80vw;
  height: 80vh;

html, body {
width: 100%;
  height: 100%;

#m {
  height: 400px;
<link href="" rel="stylesheet"/>
<script src=""></script>

<div id="m">
<div class="swiper-container">
    <!-- Additional required wrapper -->
    <div class="swiper-wrapper">
        <!-- Slides -->
        <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 1</div>
        <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 2</div>
        <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 3</div>
    <!-- If we need pagination -->
    <div class="swiper-pagination"></div>

    <!-- If we need navigation buttons -->
    <div class="swiper-button-prev"></div>
    <div class="swiper-button-next"></div>

    <!-- If we need scrollbar -->
    <div class="swiper-scrollbar"></div>

I think it does it to avoid events interfering with the Swipe, but if the user doesn’t swipe, just clicks, I would like to trigger my events.

How can I do that?
