Mohammed Assaf, a Palestinian artist from Gaza, expressed his shock after discovering that his song "Ana Dammi Falastini" (My Blood is Palestinian) had been removed from Spotify and Apple Music.

He received an official email citing accusations of anti-Semitism as the reason for the song's deletion.

Assaf, in an interview with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, shared his surprise upon finding out that his song had been removed from both platforms.

He emphasized that the song's removal only heightened his sense of honor, as it demonstrated the Palestinian people's resistance against the occupying forces.

The song, which was released eight years ago, holds deep significance for Assaf and his Palestinian identity.
