Gal Gadot took to Instagram on Sunday to post a message of solidarity with the residents of Israel’s South.

“My heart hurts,” she wrote in Hebrew on Instagram. “I’m praying for days of quiet and peace.”

Gadot’s words accompanied a repost of a quote from word artist Ido Grinberg, aka Mismas: “I have pains on the south side of my heart.”

While Gadot regularly speaks about her Israeli heritage and upbringing, she rarely comments on violence between in Gaza.

In 2014, during Operation Protective Edge, Gadot posted a photo of her and her daughter lighting Shabbat candles.

“I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens,” she wrote at the time. “Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children... We shall overcome!!! Shabbat Shalom! #weareright #freegazafromhamas #stopterror”

That post garnered a fair amount of controversy for the actress, and heavy criticism from pro-Palestinian activists.
