Cricket legend Shahid Afridi has dedicated a poem to children suffering in Palestine.

“I’m filled with pride seeing you [his daughter] stand up for Palestinian children,” Afridi tweeted with photos showing his daughter Asmara raising the Palestinian flag. 

His poem for children who have lost their homes and loved ones in Israel’s relentless bombing has attracted over 10,000 likes and multiple retweets.

“We are far, far away,” Afridi said. “But our hearts beat with you.”

Pakistani celebrities have called Israel out for “perpetrating genocide” in Palestine. Stars joined protests held in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, including Fawad Khan and his wife Sadaf, Ayesha Omar, Hania Aamir among others. They were spotted holding placards and chanting slogans in support of Palestine.

Israeli strikes on Gaza since May 10 have killed 232 Palestinians, including 65 children, as well as fighters, and have wounded another 1,900, according to the Gaza health ministry. Israel and and the Islamist movement in Palestine Hamas have agreed to a ceasefire after 11 days of violence.
