R&B singer Rihanna called out to the governments of Palestine and Israeli to stop the war in the Middle East by sharing a lengthy statement on her Instagram page.
Innocent people and children most affected by the tension between Israel and Palestine. Since yesterday evening, dozens of innocent people have died in both Palestine and Israel due to the bombs dropped on the cities.
In a statement regarding the Israeli-Palestinian tension, Rihanna stated that she mourned the death of innocent people, condemned the violence, and stood by humanity.
Emphasizing that determination must be shown to save innocent people who are caught in the middle of conflicts, Rihanna made a statement stating that she stands by humanity. In a tweet in 2014, Rihanna shared the ‘#FreePalestine’ message but later deleted it.
Here’s what Rihanna wrote:
“My heart is breaking with the violence I’m seeing displayed between Israel and Palestine! I can’t bare to see it! Innocent Israeli and Palestinian children are hiding in bomb shelters, over 40 lives lost in Gaza alone, at least 13 of whom were also innocent children! There needs to be some kind of resolve!
We are sadly watching innocent people fall victim to notions perpetuated by government and extremists, and this cycle needs to be broken!”
She also captioned:
“I stand with humanity! this ain’t it y’all!”
