Bruno Mars cancelled a gig in Tel Aviv, Israel on Saturday after deadly terror attacks in the south of the country.

Fighters from the Islamic fundamentalist Palestinian militant group Hamas crossed the border from Gaza in the early hours of Saturday and attacked civilians and military personnel. The Israeli death toll from the attacks had risen above 600 by Sunday.

With Israel declaring a state of war, and rocket fire aimed across the border, the Uptown Funk singer cancelled his gig at Tel Aviv’s Park HaYarkon venue.

“Bruno Mars concert scheduled to take place tonight is cancelled,” an Instagram post from Live Nation Israel read. “All ticket purchases to the show will receive an automatic refund to the credit card through which the purchase was made. We stand with the residents of Israel, IDF fighters and the security forces in these difficult moments.”

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country is "at war", with forces moving into Gaza to retaliate against Hamas and degrade its military capabilities.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza reported that at least 198 Palestinians were killed in air strikes on Saturday.
