In a now-deleted Instagram post, the 28-year-old model alleged that Israel had been involved in a history of violence against Palestinians long before the recent conflict with Hamas. She highlighted incidents of killings, torture, rape, abductions, and humiliations, emphasizing the plight of Palestinians.

One contentious point was Hadid’s claim that Israel is the “only country in the world” holding children as prisoners of war. She spotlighted the case of Ahmed Almanasra, arrested by Israeli police at age 13 after being involved in a stabbing incident. He received a prison sentence, which was later reduced.

Her post also referenced alleged mistreatment of Almanasra, including solitary confinement despite health issues, and brought attention to other Palestinian children reportedly detained in Israeli jails.

Moreover, Hadid shared a video suggesting that Israeli authorities were involved in organ harvesting from deceased Palestinians without consent.

The model’s stance triggered strong reactions on social media, with several users urging IMG, her modelling agency, to sever ties with her.

In a separate incident, last month, Hadid shared a graphic on her Instagram story that criticized the Israeli government’s actions toward Palestinians. This post also drew attention and further fueled the ongoing debate about the conflict.

In response to Hadid’s statements, Israel emphasized the threats posed by Hamas and underscored the necessity to condemn such acts of violence. They highlighted the importance of supporting Israel’s defense against what they described as “barbaric terrorists.”
