The 27-year-old star took to Instagram Thursday with a detailed statement calling for pressure to be put on political leaders to ‘stand together in defending humanity and compassion.’
The A-list model spoke about the sensitive issue more than two weeks after her sister Gigi talked publicly about the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.
‘I have yet to find the ideal words for this deeply intricate and horrific past two weeks, weeks that have turned the worlds attention back toward a situation that has been taking innocent lives, and affecting families for decades,’ she said. ‘I have much to say, but for today, I will keep it short.’
Bella, whose father is Palestinian real estate businessman Mohamed Hadid, continued: ‘I’ve been sent hundreds of death threats daily, my phone number has been leaked, and my family has felt to be in danger.’
The latest: Bella Hadid, 27, has spoken publicly for the first time about the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas , saying that ‘there is an urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza that must be attended to.’ Pictured in Las Vegas in March

Bella in her post said that ‘we must all stand together in defending humanity and compassion – and demanding that our leaders do the same. All religions are peace – it is governments that are corrupt, and intertwining.
She continued: ‘The two makes for the greatest sin of all. We are one and God has created all equal. All bloodshed, tears and bodies should be mourned with the same respect.’
Bella said that ‘there is an urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza that must be attended to,’ as ‘families need access to water and food’ and ‘hospitals need fuel to power generators, tend to the wounded and keep people alive.
‘Wars have laws – and they must be upheld no matter what.’
