Lauryn Hill cancels Israel concert

American hip-hop singer Lauryn Hill has cancelled her upcoming May 7th performance in Rishon Lezion, she announced on Monday.

"When deciding to play the region, my intention was to perform in both Tel Aviv and Ramallah," the R&B hitmaker said on her website. "Setting up a performance in the Palestinian Territory, at the same time as our show in Israel, proved to be a challenge."

Ms. Hill was scheduled to rock the stage this Thursday at the Rishon Lezion Park Live Amphitheater, but has recently come under pressure to cancel her tour to the region.
