“My sister may God open the Gates of Heaven wide open and give Ghada an easy entry you will be among the most beautiful Palestinians in heaven Momma wa baba Magida Maha our beloved cousin Zuhair and all the freedom fighters of Palestine to greet you,” he added.
Mohamed’s daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid, also posted tributes to their aunt on Instagram mourning her death.
The father-of-five has previously been open about how he was forced to flee his home when he was just a baby.
Sharing a picture from his younger years back in 2020, Mohamed explained that he doesn’t have “a single picture of me [as] when I was a baby I was just about 9 days old when I and my family were refugees to the refugee camps in Syria from Palestine”.
Mohamed eventually relocated to the US where he has resided for a number of years.
