Netizens lambast Gal Gadot after she calls for a ‘solution’ to the Israel-Palestine conflict!

Hollywood actress Gal Gadot, a former Israeli Defence Forces fighter, shared a statement on Twitter, saying it broke her heart to see that her “country is at war”.

“My heart breaks. My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people,” the 36-year-old actor wrote.

She went on to add, “This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation. Our neighbors deserve the same. I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we could live side by side in peace. I pray for better days.”

 

Soon after posting, her post on Twitter was flooded with replies that criticised her for being a “propaganda” tool for Israel, given her past military service record.

Many called out Gadot for using the word “neighbour” instead of referencing Palestine by name.
