Kim Kardashian has apologised for “offending” some of her followers by tweeting about the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

The reality star said that she wants “own up” for publishing two tweets -- the first read, “Praying for everyone in Israel.

A short time later, she added, “Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!

Kim later deleted both the tweets and issued a statement as an apology.

“I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realised that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologise,” TMZ.com quoted her as saying in the statement.

“I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didn’t choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires,” the statement added.
