Dua Lipa has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza following recent Israeli airstrikes. On Sunday, The Associated Press reported that Israeli airstrikes had targeted tents in the Gaza city of Rafah, where displaced people were seeking shelter amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. Palestinian health officials reported that at least 45 people were killed in the strike.

In response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the strike on Rafah as a “tragic mishap,” stating that the military had intended to target a Hamas-held compound as part of their response to the surprise attack on southern Israel on October 7.

On Tuesday, Dua Lipa took to her Instagram Stories to share a graphic from Artists4Ceasefire with the hashtag #alleyesonrafah. In a further comment, she wrote, “Burning children alive can never be justified,” and called for global solidarity with Gaza, describing the situation as an “Israeli genocide.”

The singer, who has 88 million Instagram followers, previously signed an open letter published by Artists4Ceasefire urging U.S. President Joe Biden to advocate for peace in Gaza. In an interview with ELLE magazine in April, London-born Dua shared her connection to those suffering injustices, citing her Kosovar family’s background.

“I feel very close to (those suffering) injustices in the world, or inequality. Whether that be war, or coming out to your family, everyone’s got a different experience… It’s about support and learning together,” she stated.
