Natalia Fadeev, who is she?
In her posts, the former soldier with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is frequently seen in uniform in support of her country and criticizing Palestinians. Fadeev’s TikTok account has undoubtedly caused some controversy, whether it is providing a perspective on the situation or mocking the opposing side.

She also participates in Airsoft, a competitive team shooting sport in which participants use plastic projectiles to take on the opposing team.
Fadeev is a member of a group called the Alpha Gun Angels, according to a 2019 article in Jewish Currents. The group “bill themselves as Israel’s premier gun-modelling and social media – marketing agency, are a team of nine active and veteran IDF combat soldiers turned Instagram celebrities,” according to the report.
Criticism on the internet
There are conflicting reactions in her comment section. Some users have expressed their support for Israel. “I love how many people in this country believe Israel is weak. You don’t mess with the people of God. South African love and support, “One user made a comment.
Some people did not agree with her. “If rocks don’t scare you, why respond with guns and grenades?” one person wrote.
The majority of Fadeev’s videos appear to ignore the fact that the IDF is responsible for the deaths of Palestinians in the West Bank this week. One of her TikTok posts claimed that Palestinians are in danger from Hamas and that the IDF is there to “defend us both and destroy Hamas.”
