The tweet was live for eight minutes before it was removed, though not before it garnered more than 6,800 retweets.

A "source close to" Rihanna told TMZ that the singer "deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted," and "she didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans."

The TMZ source said Rihanna is neither pro-Palestinian or Pro-Israel, only "pro-peace" and that "she doesn't want innocent people dying."

NBA star Dwight Howard tweeted the same message over the weekend, before deleting it as well and calling it a "mistake."

Hamas rejected a cease-fire agreement on Tuesday, sending more rockets from Gaza into Israel. Israel vowed Hamas would "pay the price" for its actions.
