Gigi Hadid defended her pro-Palestinian post Wednesday following the deadly protests on the Gaza border earlier this week.

“Ive said it before and Ill say it again. For me, this is not about religion or one against the other – its about the greed. #FreePalestine #freegaza #coexist,” the 23-year-old Victorias Secret model tweeted. (RELATED: Celebs Blame Trump For Deadly Protest Over US Embassy Opening In Jerusalem)

Shortly after she made her post, she was attacked for appearing to blame Israel for the violent clashes along the Gaza border between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces that left 52 people dead and thousands injured Monday.

In response, Hadid blasted people for assuming she was choosing one side over the other.

“Youll all see whatever side you want. My intent is never to further separate groups in hatred- I live my life loving everyone regardless of religion/race. So I will say again for the last time, Im not anti-anyone. I am only pro- coexistence. That is all. #freepalestine,” the supermodel tweeted.

I didnt call Jews greedy, but anyone who cant look past their own ego will twist it that way.
Im saying coexistence (Palestinians & Israelis, as they once before lived…) is to not live in greed. Thats all Id hope for. I dont agree with the violence from either side. https://t.co/udxcZTz689
