JK Rowling retweets a post highlighting the plight of Noya Dan, a 12-year-old Israeli girl with autism held hostage by terrorists in Gaza who was a big Harry Potter fan.
“For obvious reasons, this picture has hit home with me,” the author says, adding that kidnapping children is “despicable and wholly unjustifiable,” and expressing hope for the release of all captives in Gaza.
Kidnapping children is despicable and wholly unjustifiable. For obvious reasons, this picture has hit home with me. May Noya and all hostages taken by Hamas be returned soon, safely, to their families. https://t.co/YIbf3egib4
