Alia, who is Pooja’s half-sister, took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday and re-shared a post by @themotherhoodhome which read, “All children deserve love. All children deserve safety. All children deserve peace. All children deserve life. And all mothers deserve to be able to give their children those things (red heart doodle).” Alia wrote in the caption, “#AllEyesOnRafah.”

Kareena Kapoor also took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to re-share a post by the official Instagram handle of UNICEF. In it, Executive Director Catherine Russell condemned the killing of children and families in Rafah, and called the act “unconscionable.” Varun Dhawan also took to his Instagram stories to share the “All Eyes on Rafah” image.

Some of the other stars who have come out with their solidarity are Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Triptii Dimri, Madhuri Dixit, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Dia Mirza, and Swara Bhasker.

Israeli shelling and airstrikes killed at least 37 people, most of them sheltering in tents, outside the southern Gaza city of Rafah overnight and on Tuesday — pummeling the same area where strikes triggered a deadly fire days earlier in a camp for displaced Palestinians — according to witnesses, emergency workers and hospital officials.
