Many on social media have questioned global star Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ silence on the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict. Meanwhile, several celebrities including Gal Gadot who served as a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, model Gigi Hadid and actor Mark Ruffalo have expressed their solidarity with the Palestinian families as the hostility between Palestine and Israel continues to escalate causing the loss of lives.
Priyanka recently shared that over 14,000 contributors have helped raise $1 million, to help India amid the second wave of Covid-19. Priyanka shared a video on Instagram late on Wednesday night according to India time, featuring a world map and the countries from where donations have poured in to help India.
