A day after model Bella Hadid took to NYC streets for a pro-Palestinian march, the state of Israel slammed the supermodel saying her advocacy amounted to calling for the "elimination of the Jewish state."

The official handle of the country tagged Hadid in a tweet and wrote, "When celebrities like @BellaHadid advocate for throwing Jews into the sea, they are advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State. This shouldn't be an Israeli-Palestinian issue. This should be a human issue. Shame on you. #IsraelUnderAttack."

The tweet also had a screen grab of the live Instagram feed that Hadid had shared of the protest wearing a traditional dress- a Keffiyeh and a face mask.
