NAZARETH, Famous Palestinian singer, composer and artist Reem Banna was laid to rest in her hometown city of Nazareth in northern Palestine on Saturday evening.
Hundreds of mourners gathered at her funeral in Nazareth and chanted some of her nationalist songs during the funeral.
Born in Nazareth in 1966, Banna was known for her nationalist songs. She was diagnosed with cancer nine years ago, which forced her to quit singing in 2016.
Her health deteriorated only last week until she was declared dead on Saturday early morning at a Nazareth hospital, where she had been getting treatment.
