The Walt Disney Company is donating $2 million to organisations providing humanitarian relief to those affected by the Palestinian resistance’s infiltration into settlements around the Gaza envelope.

“In the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks targeting Jews in Israel this past weekend, we must all do what we can to support the innocent people experiencing so much pain, violence, and uncertainty — particularly children,” said Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company.

“We condemn these attacks, the hate that motivated them, and all acts of terrorism, and we will continue working to find more ways to provide support in the region, and to honor the victims, their families, and all those affected by this war.”

It said some of the money would be given to non-profits who focus on providing aid to children.
