Gigi and Bella Hadid are furious with everyone for remaining silent amid the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

She also took to her Instagram stories to share a photograph of her father Mohamed Hadid's US passport, which mentioned his birthplace as 'Palestine'.

On the other hand, Bella Hadid also voiced her opinion about the same to extended support to her country and pointed out how political leaders have been hesitant to speak up about the issue in the fear of reprimand. She wrote, "Future generations will look back in disbelief and wonder how we allowed the Palestinian suffering to continue for so long. A human tragedy unfolding right in front of our eyes." The 24-year-old continued, "Politicians stutter neutral words in fear of being reprimanded whilst the world remains silent to avoid offending the wrong people." She also expressed adding, "History has taught us to speak up. You are either on the right side or you are not. It's that simple."
