"She deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted,She didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans," said the source.

"She is a person who is pro-peace and doesn't want innocent people dying," another source added.

"Let's pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope," tweeted the 26-year-old songstress hours after taking down the original tweet, but this time being more politically correct.
