In the past week, as Israel initiated a wave of airstrikes while responding to Hamas rocket attacks, the young model shared:
“One cannot advocate for racial equality, LGBT & women’s rights, condemn corrupt & abusive regimes and other injustices yet choose to ignore the Palestinian oppression.”
Furthermore, the American-Palestinian star posted valuable information and resources in support of the people of Gaza. She also shared photographs of her family, declaring how proud she is of her Palestinian heritage.

Moreover, Bella used her IG account to say that she stands with her Palestinian brothers and sisters:
“I have been told my entire life that who I am : a Palestinian woman – is not real. I’ve been told my father does not have a birth place if he is from Palestine. And I am here to say . Palestine is very much real and the Palestinian people are here to stay and coexist. As they always have.
And we will always come together as a family. Always.”
Meanwhile, Gigi Hadid, Bella’s sister, who is also a top model, called out Instagram for allegedly threatening to delete accounts with pro-Palestine posts. While tagging the platform, she wrote:
“Can you please explain what the issue with posting facts about Palestine is, exactly?”
