Lana Del Rey has cancelled her scheduled show in Tel Aviv on August 20, becoming the latest act to call off shows in Israel as bloodshed in Gaza increases.

Billboard reports that Del Rey's first ever appearance in Israel has been scrapped with no new date scheduled.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Brian Jonestown Massacre, America, and Backstreet Boys have all cancelled gigs in Israel in recent weeks with Cee-Lo Green and Megadeth also pulling out of their shows this week. 

Artists have cited both safety concerns and their condemnation of the Gaza conflict as reasons for cancelling their shows.

Lady Gaga is due to play Tel Aviv, on September 13 and her promoter Arthur Fogel of Live Nation said: "We are watching the situation."
