Palestinian-Dutch supermodel Bella Hadid posted a video on her social media Saturday — and then deleted it — showing her crying about Palestinians involved in the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestine.

Hadid, who’s been outspoken in favor of Palestinians and been slammed for it, said she felt a “deep sense of pain” for them in the video, which showed her close up with tears streaming down her face.

“I feel a deep sense of pain for Palestine and for my Palestinian brothers and sisters today and everyday. Watching these videos physically breaks my heart into 100 different pieces,” she said in the now-deleted video.

“You cannot allow yourself to be desensitized to watching human life being taken. You just can’t. Palestinian lives are the lives that will help change the world. And they are being taken from us by the second. #FreePalestine.”

Hadid came under the gun earlier when she posted a now-deleted multi-graphic claiming that Israel, which was established in 1948, was not a country but a colonizer which caused thousands of Palestinians to become refugees. She was accused of anti-Semitism after posting it.

Bella’s older sister Gigi, 26, also a supermodel, has been posting pro-Palestinian commentary as well and has also been accused of anti-Semitism. She hit back at haters Saturday with a post that read:

“I condemn anti-Semitism. I am not trying to kill you, nor would I ever want that. I do not wish any more deaths upon Israelis, just as I feel about Palestinians. What I do want is equal rights for Palestinians. 

She continued: “There are also Jewish Palestinians and Christian Palestinians, as there was, coexisting, with my father’s Muslim Palestinian family when he was born in Palestine in 1948. I wish you peace.”

Together the Hadid sisters have more than 100 million followers on Instagram.

Since Monday, the Palestinians say at least 139 people, including 39 children, have been killed in Gaza. Israel has reported 10 dead, according to Reuters.
