Palestinian-American model Anwar Hadid (aka Gigi and Bella Hadid's younger brother) descended on his father's homeland for the second time this year.
The 20-year-old posted several photos of himself in Palestine on Instagram, revealing his new destination to be Ramallah. In one of the images, he can be seen enjoying the view of Ramallah and its buildings; in another, he posed with a kid and captioned the photo: "Abu shabab."
The model also uploaded a pic of Ramallah's Nelson Mandela Square which features a large statue of the former South African leader. The figure is a gift from the people of Johannesburg to Palestinians and stands "as a symbol of solidarity and support between the two cities."
The Hadids have never shied away from highlighting their roots and have expressed solidarity with Palestinians time and again.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise to most people as their father, Mohamed Hadid, was born in Nazareth during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. He then fled to Syria with his family when he was 18 months old.
Though this isn't the first time the youngest Hadid sibling visits Palestine, his father was particularly proud of this trip and made sure to express his feelings over it on Instagram. Reposting one of his son's images on the platform, father Hadid wrote:
"Anwar in #Ramallah spreading love and peace and the Right of movement May God give you the strength to help to bring justice to the helpless I LOVE YOU MY SON @anwarhadid The beaming light of the forgotten Palestinian."
He also left several endearing comments under his son's other social media posts, hailing him for standing up for the land of his grandparents.
Hadid is an avid activist for Palestinians' right to freedom
Hadid's most recent trip to Palestine saw him meet up with Diala Isid, the founder of the Right to Movement, a non-profit running community that aims to highlight the travel restrictions imposed on many Palestinians.
His cousin, Lina Hadid, also Instagrammed a photo of him visiting the Palestinian Museum in Ramallah and posing between two iconic pieces by artists Nabil Anani and Sliman Mansour.
The Hadids' unwavering support for Palestine
The Hadid siblings have always publicly expressed solidarity with their people and that stems from the values they were brought up on.
In April, Anwar and his sisters made a surprise appearance at the Arab Conference at Harvard in support of their father as he talked about the family's Palestinian roots. During his address, he spoke about how he passes on his pride in his heritage.
"My parents always embedded in us that we are Palestinians, we'll always be Palestinians, so my home has always been that virtual home, where my mum, my dad, my kids were learning to roll grape leaves with their grandma," Mohamed Hadid said at the time.
Bella and Gigi Hadid have been vocal about their support numerous times in the past.
In Dec. 2017, supermodel Bella Hadid expressed solidarity with Palestinians in light of U.S. President Donald Trump's problematic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Months later, Gigi Hadid took to social media to call out Israeli crimes and voiced her support for Palestine. This came in response to Israel's crackdown on Palestinians in Gaza who were protesting the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem.
