The poignant cry “#AllEyesonRafah” has resonated globally. From the streets around the world to social media, activists, celebrities, and communities are urgently calling for attention and action.

As of Wednesday, the Israeli forces continue to move further into Rafah, intensifying their aerial bombardment including the al-Mawasi evacuation zone, following Monday’s strike at the centre for the displaced in Rafah that massacred 45 people. 

The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza said Wednesday that at least 36,171 people have been killed in the territory since Oct 7, 2023. 

The toll includes at least 75 deaths over the past 24 hours, a ministry statement said, adding that 81,420 people have been injured in the Gaza Strip.

As the Israeli offensive on Rafah intensified, Wednesday saw an apparent AI-generated image with the phrase “All eyes on Rafah” being shared by millions of social media users on different platforms including celebrities, raising voices concerning the humanitarian situation in Rafah.

Reportedly the image has been reposted on 40.4 million Instagram stories. Besides Instagram, the image has also been re-shared on the X platform. 

Internationally, figures including Australian cricket player Travis Head, British singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock, American model Bella Hadid and actresses Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Susan Sarandon were among the millions to share the image. 

Irish actress Nicola Coughlan from the Netflix show Bridgerton, American comedian and writer Hasan Minhaj, American actor Aaron Paul, British actor and activist Jameela Jameel and British singer Dua Lipa also shared the image.

Indian celebrities, including Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, KhanVarun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Aly Goni, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and Tripti Dimri shared the identical “All Eyes on Rafah” image on their respective Instagram stories.

However, Madhuri Dixit amid the backlash, later deleted her story. 

The widespread condemnation reflects the gravity of the situation in Rafah.

This AI-generated image was not flagged by algorithms on platforms like Meta [Facebook and Instagram], designed to filter graphic violence. 

Netanyahu after the massacre of 45 people at the centre for the displaced in Rafah said that the strike went tragically wrong. 

In a statement issued on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said an air strike in the area of Rafah in southern Gaza that killed dozens of Palestinians was not intended to cause civilian casualties and would be investigated.

“In Rafah, we already evacuated about 1 million non-combatant residents and despite our utmost effort not to harm non-combatants, something unfortunately went tragically wrong,” he said in a speech in parliament that was interrupted by shouting from opposition lawmakers.


“We are investigating the incident and will reach conclusions because this is our policy,” Netanyahu said. 

At least 45 people were killed in the deadly Israeli strike on the camp, according to the Gaza Health Ministry and the Palestinian Red Crescent rescue service.
