A large number of these victims are children. Palestinian civilians must be protected, period.”

“We remain heartbroken by the horrible terror attack against innocent civilians in Israel on October 7th, many of them also children. There is no situation where attacks on civilians are acceptable,” they added. “We strongly denounce any & all forms of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.”

“We urge everyone to support humanitarian organisations working tirelessly to provide aid & relief to those in need. Every bit of help can make a difference,” the statement continued to read.

“Rare Beauty will be making donations to the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies – Magen David Adom, & Palestinian Red Crescent Society – who are providing urgent care on the ground. We will also be donating to UNICEF to help get urgent medical relief & resources to the children of Gaza.”
