Supermodels Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are trending on social media after speaking in favor of Palestine in regards to the ongoing conflict with Israel.
The star sister duo did not shy away from using their powerful social media presence to shed light on Israel and Palestine’s conflict. The sisters’ father, Mohammed Hadid, hails from a Palestinian origin and that’s why the sisters always feel the need to raise their voices regarding oppression faced by their fellow Palestinean brothers and sisters, time and time again.
The recent clashes between both Palestine and Israel are at the forefront of the media today with the United Nations issuing grave concern and warning regarding Israel’s intentions of moving forward with a full-blown war.
Moreover, officials have even gone as far as mentioning how this form of violence is the worst ever since the year 2019.
The major violence and tension-based escalation began a few days back when Israeli forces launched an attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque which is renowned to be one of the holiest places for Muslims around the globe.
To the Jews, this compound is referred to as the Temple Mount, but for Muslims, it’s commonly referred to as Noble Sanctuary.
Last Saturday, Bella Hadid was quick to share her emotional thoughts regarding the violence. And that’s when she opted to put up a tearful post, right after viewing the horrifyingly violent clashes play out in the center of Jerusalem’s Old City.
The attacks by Israelis have surmounted to new heights, despite the fact that it is the holy month of Ramadan- a time termed to be the most sacred one of them all for Muslims around the globe.
Taking to their own accounts on Instagram, both Gigi and Bella drew attention to the violence with Gigi using the bold terms, “You will not erase Palestine,” and Bella mentioning “Palestine cannot be erased.”
