Dua Lipa again calls for immediate Gaza cease-fire: ‘Burning children alive can never be justified’

Pop star Dua Lipa called for an immediate cease-fire in the war in Gaza again Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

“Burning children alive can never be justified,” Lipa said in an Instagram post Tuesday that came alongside a graphic from the group Artists4Ceasefire, according to multiple outlets. “The whole world is mobilising to stop the Israeli genocide. Please show your solidarity with Gaza.”

A recent strike by Israel on the southern city of Rafah in Gaza that set fire to a displaced persons camp and killed 45 Palestinians and injured 200 has resulted in international fury aimed at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his country.

Lipa, alongside fellow pop musicians including Selena Gomez, Zayn Malik and the band MUNA, had previously signed the Artists4Ceasefire open letter to President Biden that calls for “an immediate de-escalation and ceasefire in Gaza and Israel before another life is lost.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone published in January, Lipa said there were “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” in Gaza.

“I think there’s no kind of deep discussion about war and oppression. It just is something that we’ve seen happen time and time again,” the “Houdini” singer said in the Rolling Stone interview.

“I feel like just being a musician and posting about something doesn’t make enough of a difference, but hopefully, just showing solidarity, which is sometimes all you feel like you can do, is important,” Lipa said.
