The popular singer's performance in the Jewish state was the subject of a fierce online battle between British Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists,
who tried to pressure Jones to cancel his concert in the country, and Israel supporters who encouraged him to go ahead with the performance and expressed their love for the singer.
Jones is famous for a string of hits from his 50-year career, including "Delilah," "It's Not Unusual" and "Sex Bomb." Since 2012 he has been serving as a coach on television talent show "The Voice UK."
