Gal Gadot Called Palestinians ‘Neighbors’ In Instagram Post
Gadot commented on the surge in the violence plaguing Israel and Palestine over the last weeks, with hundreds of Palestinians wounded in clashes with Israeli police.
Gadot’s statement was slammed on social media for being insensitive and blind to the dynamic at play.
“My heart breaks. My country is at war,” the actress wrote on May 12, adding a broken heart emoji in the caption.
“I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long,” she continues.
Gadot also referred to Palestinians as “our neighbors”.
“Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation, our neighbors deserve the same,” she adds.
Gadot served in the Israeli Defense Force as a soldier for two years when she was 18. Serving in the Israel Defense Force is mandatory for all Israel citizens over the age of 18 and those who refuse to serve could face jail time.
