Egyptian singer and actor Midhat Salih, Jordanian singer Zein Awad and Qatari singer Ali Abd al-Sattar were scheduled to perform in Ramallah as part of a campaign to support Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, but were denied entry at the Allenby Bridge crossing.

They were due to perform Wednesday in the “Appeal for Freedom” campaign organized by the PA ministry of prisoners.

Renowned Tunisian singer Lutfi Bushnaq was allowed entry into the West Bank Tuesday and was welcomed by deputy governor of Jericho Jamal Rajoub.

Bushnaq said he was happy to visit Palestine and help convey a message to the world on behalf of Palestinians.
