Ambassador to Turkey Gabby Levy on Sunday said that the Cameri theater company was forced to cancel a play in the country after Turkish pro-Palestinian protesters threatened to disrupt the performance.

Levy called on the troupe to cancel the play following warnings from Turkish authorities that protests could break out in the theater in Antalya.

Company director Noam Semel told Army Radio that he canceled the play because he could not endanger the company.
