Angelina Jolie, a well-known actress and humanitarian, recently expressed her concerns regarding the Gaza War on social media. She specifically pointed out that she believes Israel is responsible for what she describes as the “deliberate bombing of a trapped population.”
On her Instagram account, Jolie posted a photo illustrating the destruction in the Jabalia refugee camp, one of the areas affected by the conflict.
In her Instagram post, Jolie wrote, “This is the deliberate bombing of a trapped population who have nowhere to flee. Gaza has been an open-air prison for nearly two decades and is fast becoming a mass grave. 40% of those killed are innocent children. Whole families are being murdered.”
She further added, “While the world watches and with the active support of many governments, millions of Palestinian civilians, including children, women, and families, are being collectively punished and dehumanized. They are also facing shortages of food, medicine, and humanitarian aid, which goes against international law. World leaders, by not demanding a humanitarian ceasefire and blocking the UN Security Council from imposing one on both parties, are, in her view, complicit in these actions.”
It’s worth noting that other celebrities like Gal Gadot, Justin Bieber, and Dwayne Johnson have also publicly shared their perspectives on the conflict, which began with a surprise attack by Hamas on Israeli towns and cities on October 7, leading to Israel’s declaration of war on Hamas in response.
