In the latest wave of Palestinian advocacy, Alana Hadid, the elder sibling of the supermodel Hadid sisters, is making sure she’s staying vocal about Palestine by constantly posting and commenting on reports about the recent humanitarian crisis.

The Los Angeles-based fashion designer has emerged as one of the most active celebrity voices lending her strong social media presence in shining light on the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Alana recently commented on a CNN video reporting on the conflict.

The video depicted a reporter asking for a helmet while reporting on location of the Israel - Palestine war-zone.

“This is the tantamount to click bait. While people are dying you are showing a reporter asking for a helmet.

“You think the slaughter of an entire population is a fair response to the actions of some. You are supporting collective punishment and that’s war crime. Thanks. Try again,” she said in the comment section.

Alana has also been actively posting stories to her instagram account, more recently of a video depicting Palestinian victims.

“This isn’t just this week. Palestinians have been suffering like this for 75 years.75 years!.

“It’s not complicated, it's horrifying.The world has let Palestinians down and now they are letting them be wiped out,” she said in one of her stories.

She also posted a heart-wrenching video of a Palestinian man talking about loss, accompanying it with a heart-wrenching caption of her own.

“Now we hope this haunts you. It never had to come to this,” she said.

“This isn’t a war. Stop calling it a freaking war,” she said.

In an interview with online lifestyle site MuslimGirl. Alana describes why it is so important for people to be aware of what’s happening in Palestine in an interview.

"This is a humanitarian crisis. I mean, I can’t say it enough. It’s important that people understand that this is not one side against another side and debating our views.

"We are pointing out that there are people who are being mistreated in a very horrible way for many, many years. We want equality and we want to be treated correctly. And we want the people that are living in these countries to be allowed to live like they live in a sovereign country. People need to hear about it. If it was happening in your country, or if it was happening anywhere else in the world, you would want to know," she said.
