"This is the deliberate bombing of a trapped population who have nowhere to flee. Gaza has been an open-air prison for nearly two decades and is fast becoming a mass grave. 40% of those killed are innocent children," the American actress said in an Instagram post.

"Whole families are being murdered. While the world watches and with the active support of many governments, millions of Palestinian civilians - children, women, families - are being collectively punished and dehumanized, all while being deprived food, medicine and humanitarian aid against international law. By refusing to demand a humanitarian ceasefire and blocking the UN Security Council from imposing one on both parties, world leaders are complicit in these crimes."

This is the second time Jolie refrains from mentioning Hamas and its tactics, which include using the civilian population as a human shield and placing its headquarters within hospitals, schools and kindergartens. She also didn't mention the ongoing rockets fired indiscriminately on Israeli civilians by Hamas terrorists.
The Tomb Raider actress also omitted to acknowledge in both posts the 240 hostages held by Hamas terrorists and the atrocities committed by the terror group on October 7, which included murdering innocent women and children, burning them alive, beheading and rape.
