The Israeli delegation will no longer take part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy, its national broadcaster said.

An said a strike at the State Department in Israel had compromised its “security protocols.”

Michael Ben David will represent the country with the song IM after winning the Israeli version of X Factor.

However, the announcement casts doubt on his performance.

Kan has not confirmed if the singer will compete with a taped performance that will be broadcast during the competition.

The channel tweeted: “With immediate effect, the Israeli delegation will not attend Eurovision in Turin due to the Foreign Ministry strike affecting security protocols.”

Russia was banned from participating in this year’s competition after invading Ukraine.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which produces the event, said the inclusion of a Russian entry in the competition in May would “discredit” the event.

The union had previously said it would allow Russia to compete, but has faced heavy criticism from state broadcasters in countries including Iceland, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands.

The 2021 competition was held in Rotterdam, Netherlands after the 2020 show was cancelled, and was won by Italian rock band Maneskin with their song Zitti E Buoni.

Britain suffered a crushing defeat as singer James Newman was the only contestant to score zero on both the jury and the public vote, finishing bottom of the rankings.

The Eurovision grand finale will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds from 8pm on 14 May.

Kan and the EBU have been asked for comment.
