Protest at IFA ahead of Israel friendly

A pro-Palestine group held a protest at IFA headquarters in Belfast ahead of Israel’s friendly tonight against Northern Ireland.

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign said: “While the Israeli team can go where it likes, the Palestinian team is subject to restrictions and cannot travel or play and train at home. It is an unfair situation.

"This was a deliberately low-key demonstration which was not intended as an attack on the Northern Ireland team.”
