Samantha rallies for Palestine

Samantha has been seen sharing an Instagram story with the phrase “All Eyes on Rafah”. Nine and half million users on Instagram have shared this same message on their respective stories. What does “All Eyes on Rafah” even mean?

Rafah was one of the last places in the Gaza Strip that have been unattached by the Israeli forces. Close to a million Palestinians refugees were living in the town, seeking shelter from Israeli air strikes. This has changed yesterday, as the Israeli military launched air strikes at a refugee camp in Tal Al Sultan, Rafah, Gaza. While Israel claims that this was a Hamas compound, human rights activists are saying that countless civilians, including children have been burned alive in these attacks.

The “All Eyes on Rafah” campaign highlights the dire conditions faced by residents due to ongoing conflict, emphasizing the need for the warring parties to declare a ceasefire as soon as possible. Their involvement highlights the power of social media in raising awareness against the horrors of an ongoing war.
