Stacey Solomon Reveals She's Been Sent 'Hostile' Messages Regarding Israel-Palestine Crisis

Stacey Solomon has broken her social media silence to reveal she is receiving "hostile" messages about the crisis in Israel and Palestine.

The Loose Women star, who is Jewish, said her inbox was full of messages demanding she make her stance on the conflict clear.

In an Instagram this morning - having been inactive on the app since Sunday - she wrote: "I understand what so many people are in pain and hurting from the horrendous situation between Israel and Palestine, myself included, some of the messages in my in box suggest that some may feel people or a religion are 'responsible' but please believe me when I say this is not the case."

She continued: "First and foremost I can not express enough that I wholeheartedly stand against violence and the killing of innocent people no matter what their race, religion or differences.

"There is NO place in this world and NO justification for the pain and suffering innocent people are being subjected to".

Before then adding that the messages she was getting, demanding her thoughts on the matter, were becoming unkind, and "increasingly hostile".

"It makes me hesitant to speak about it," she admitted. "I feel, no matter what I say it could create hostility between two peaceful religious communities who stand for the same thing - humanity.

"Because of my religion anything I say or don't say may be misconstrued and/or hurt people. Potentially causing bigger divides which is the opposite of what anyone is trying to achieve."

"This does not mean I don't do what I can to support where I can people suffering in these horrendous situations." she continued.

"It does not mean that I don't care or don't know what is going on".

Stacey further dubbed the whole situation "horrendous", stating that it had been going on for "far too long" and pledging to help where she could "outside of the public eye," so as not to "incite more hatred".

"It's so sad and upsetting to watch," she said. "All I ever want to do on here is spread kindness and positivity. Not one part of me wants to create any kind of hostility towards another human being.

"I pray for peace and that the suffering of so many human being ends".
