RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Thousands of Palestinians gathered Friday in front of offices of Qirrish Motor Mall in Beitunia near Ramallah to watch the live transmission of the Arab Idol competition and express support to the Palestinian finalist from the Gaza Strip Muhammad Assaf.
Several folkloric performances and entertaining activities were performed during the event and the audience had a chance to win symbolic awards during the gathering which was aired live on several radio and TV stations.
The event was organized by Qirrish Motor Mall, a car dealer of Chevrolet, Opel, Cadillac, Buick, and Isuzu in Palestine.
General manager Adnan Qirrish delivered a short speech welcoming the attendants and thanking local organizations and media outlets which attended the event. Supporting the Palestinian star Assaf, he said, is part of the social responsibilities of his company. “As a private sector, we must support Palestinian talents by all possible means.”
The event was concluded by a drawing to win one of three trips to Beirut to attend the next Arab Idol live episode.
