The 'All Eyes On Rafah' campaign has gained significant momentum on social media after an Israeli airstrike caused a fire, killing dozens of Palestinians in a camp in Rafah on Sunday. From political activists to human rights groups and now Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities, people worldwide are drawing attention to Rafah, a city in the Gaza Strip currently under Israeli attack. On Sunday night, at least 45 Palestinians, including children, were killed when eight Israeli missiles struck a camp, igniting a fire in tents filled with displaced people. According to Gaza health officials, more than half of those killed were women, children, and elderly people, with the death toll expected to rise due to severe burns.

The strikes have triggered global support on social media, with many sharing an image that reads, "All Eyes On Rafah." Numerous Indian celebrities, including A-listers, have expressed solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza, which has faced relentless attacks over the past eight months.

Among those who posted the "All Eyes On Rafah" image are Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Varun Dhawan, Sonam Kapoor, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Dulquer Salmaan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha, Jawan director Atlee, Dia Mirza, Tripti Dimri, Rakul Preet Singh, Bhumi Pednekar, Ileana D'Cruz, and Nora Fatehi. These actors, directors, and film personalities, who work across various Indian languages, have taken to social media to stand with the people of Palestine facing brutal violence in Gaza.

Alia Bhatt shared a post to her Instagram stories that read, “All children deserve love. All children deserve safety. All children deserve peace. All children deserve life. And all mothers deserve to be able to give their children those things,” accompanied by the hashtag, “All Eyes On Rafah.”

Kareena Kapoor Khan shared a UNICEF post condemning the attacks on her Instagram stories. Priyanka Chopra, a global Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, and Varun Dhawan also posted the “All Eyes On Rafah” image. Dia Mirza added a heartbroken emoji to her post.

The viral AI-generated image, shared by millions on Instagram and other platforms, shows tents in a camp arranged to form the words "All Eyes on Rafah," reportedly becoming one of the most shared images in Instagram's history.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged on Monday that a "tragic mistake" had been made after an Israeli strike in Rafah set fire to a tent camp, resulting in the deaths of at least 45 people. This incident has sparked a surge in international criticism against Israel, with several Indian celebrities expressing outrage over the civilian casualties, including children.

Here are some Indian celebrities who have spoken out in support of Palestinians following the recent Israeli strike in Rafah:
