Moroccan singer arrested in Kuwait over duet with Israeli artist

Moroccan singer Sanaa Mohamed has been arrested in Kuwait for her musical collaboration with Israeli artist Elkana Marziano, Channel 12 reports.

Mohamed had been hit with multiple death threats following her appearance alongside Marziano.

A source involved in the case tells the network Mohamed will likely be released but forced to leave Kuwait. It is not immediately clear whether Sanaa was living there or visiting.

Morocco agreed in 2020 to normalize ties with Israel under a US-brokered deal, joining the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. However, Kuwait has no relations with Israel.
