Israel responds sharply to Greta Thunberg after ‘Stand With Gaza’ post

The State of Israel responded to a social media post by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg Friday in support of Palestinians.

“The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice and freedom for Palestinians and all civilians affected,” the 20-year-old posted to X, formerly known as Twitter. 

Israel’s X account, managed by the Middle Eastern country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, did not mince words as it fired back just over an hour after Thunberg’s second version of the tweet.

“.@GretaThunberg, Hamas doesn’t use sustainable materials for their rockets which have BUTCHERED innocent Israelis. The victims of the Hamas massacre could have been your friends. Speak up,” Israel posted.

Authorities in Gaza say more than 4,600 people have been killed in the territory since the latest war began. More than 1,400 people have been killed in Israel, the majority of them civilians slain in the Oct. 7 attack.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
