Ramallah (QNN) – The Israeli occupation authorities have withdrawn the travel permit that the Palestinian singer, Mohammed Assaf carries, which allows him to enter the occupied Palestinian territories, under a pretext of incitement.
The Israeli Knesset member, Avi Dichter said today that “Israel” will no longer allow Assaf to enter the occupied territories, and will ask the UAE authorities, where Assaf and his wife live, to stop his activities and concerts.
Dichter added that the occupation state will propose a request to the United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA) to stop Assaf’s activities as its Youth Ambassador.
The Israeli newspaper of “Makor Rishon” said in a report that the extremist Israeli centre of “Badin” alleged that the Palestinian singer incites against the occupation through his songs that encourage resistance, glorify the martyrs and call for an armed uprising against the occupation.
Assaf (31) is well known for being the winner of the second season of Arab Idol, broadcast by the MBC network. He has produced several singles and albums since then.
