Israel prevents Gaza football team from participating in Palestine Tournament

Right group: This is a flagrant violation of international law.

Israeli occupation prevented last week Gaza football team from participating in Palestine Tournament being held in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Football Union applied for the Israeli occupation authorities to issue travel permits for the Gaza footballers, but the application was denied.

According to the Union, the team would have played with other Palestinian teams on Wednesday in Nablus.

It is worth noting that the Israeli occupation forces had prevented Palestinian footballers from the occupied West Bank to enter Gaza to play with Gaza teams.

Commenting on this, Al-Mezan Centre for Human Rights stated that this is a flagrant violation of the international law which guarantees freedom of movement.
