Palestinian Authority security forces have arrested a Palestinian singer for performing in the Samaria settlement of Ariel. The singer, a resident of the West Bank village of Kafr ad-Dik, will be tried on charges of promoting normalization with Israel, people familiar with the matter told The Jerusalem Post. The singer was recently invited to perform at a party held by an Israeli factory for its Palestinian workers at the Ariel Industrial Park, the Palestinian sources said.

“Contrary to the claims of the Palestinian Authority, settlers did not attend the party,” one of the sources said. “The party was organized by the factory owners for the Palestinian workers.” Abdullah Kmeil, the PA governor of the Salfit district in the central West Bank, accused the singer of performing in front of “settlers and prostitutes.” The singer has been arrested and referred to the Palestinian judiciary, he said.
