Dua Lipa Calls For End To Israeli Genocide

“Burning children alive can never be justified...”

Dua Lipa has called for an end to Israeli military action in Rafah.

The singer first spoke about the issue last year, becoming one of 150 artists who signed  an open letter urging President Joe Biden to call for a ceasefire in Gaza.

During her Rolling Stone cover story in February the pop icon expanded on these views, explaining her experience as a Kosovan growing up in the UK made her acutely aware of the impact of war on displaced peoples.

“I feel so bad for every Israeli life lost and what happened on Oct. 7,” she said of the Hamas terrorist attacks.

“At the moment, what we have to look at is how many lives have been lost in Gaza, and the innocent civilians, and the lives that are just being lost. There are just not enough world leaders that are taking a stand and speaking up about the humanitarian crisis that’s happening, the humanitarian cease-fire that has to happen,” she explained.

Now Dua Lipa has shared a statement on IG Stories, calling for an end to Israeli action in Rafah. Calling it a genocide, she writes: “Burning children alive can never be justified”.
