Israel Slams Bella Hadid And Other Celebrities For Attending Pro-Palestine Rallies

Israel's official Twitter account has gone in on celebrities supporting Palestine as the two engage in the most hostile fighting since 2014.

Hundreds of people have been killed and wounded in the latest outpouring of violence in the region and both sides are showing no signs of letting up.

Hamas has launched several missile attacks aimed at Israel, many of which have been thwarted by Israel's Iron Dome defence system.

Israel has retaliated by pounding Gaza with airstrikes that have destroyed buildings, decimated neighbourhoods and taken out Hamas targets.

In response to the death and destruction, celebrities around the world have offered their opinions and participated in rallies.

Models Bella and Gigi Hadid have been ardent supporters of a Palestinian state due to their father being Palestinian and even attended a demonstration over the weekend.

Bella uploaded videos to her Instagram showing her draped in the Palestinian flag and she shouted a decades-old chant of 'From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free'.

However, this has resulted in a severe serve from Israel.

The country's official Twitter account wrote: "When celebrities like @BellaHadid advocate for throwing Jews into the sea, they are advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State.

"This shouldn't be an Israeli-Palestinian issue. This should be a human issue. Shame on you."

It also added a hashtag that indicated that 'Israel is under attack' at the moment and explained how that chant has been used by Palestinians to 'call for the elimination of Israel'.

Bella said she has felt a 'deep sense of pain' in watching Palestine be locked into another battle against Israel.

However, after attending the rally in New York City over the weekend, and seeing thousands of people attend other demonstrations around the world, the high-profile model was overwhelmed with positivity.

"The way my heart feels.. To be around this many beautiful, smart, respectful, loving , kind and generous Palestinians all in one place... it feels whole ! We are a rare breed!!" Hadid wrote on Instagram. "It's free Palestine til Palestine is free!!!"

The international community is rallying for Israel and Palestine to enter into a ceasefire and stop the bloodshed.

However, the global effort to find a solution was hampered by the Biden Administration when the US blocked a United Nations Security Council statement from being officially issued.

The 15-nation group was planning to say it had a 'grave concern' by what's happening in Israel and Palestine, however the United States vetoed it.

At least 200 Palestinians have been killed since the latest fighting began, including 59 children and 35 women, and roughly 1,300 people have been wounded.
