Kuala Lumpur: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) strongly condemns the unprovoked and horrific attack launched by Israeli forces on players and spectators during the Abu Ammar Cup Final match between Balata FC and Jabal Al Mukabber at the Faisal Al Husseini International Stadium in al-Ram on Thursday night.
Tear gas and rubber encased bullets were used by the Israeli forces during the assault, which led to the match being halted as several Palestinian players and fans, including children and women, suffered from breathlessness due to tear gas inhalation and had to be treated with both pitchside and in hospital.
The AFC calls for an immediate end to all acts of violence by the Israeli forces against the Palestinian people and stands in firm solidarity with the Palestine Football Association and the Palestinian football community.
