Palestinians killed and injured at Gaza border

Israel cancel World Cup warm-up friendly with Argentina citing threats against Lionel Messi

In a letter to Argentinian Ambassador Faustino Garcia, Jabareen wrote: "While Israel has long sought global recognition and acceptance of Jerusalem as its capital, the recognition should not be forthcoming".

The Qatar Football Association has provided funding to its Argentine counterpart in the past and, therefore, is likely handling the compensation cost, the Israelis suspect.

Although the Kollek Stadium is in west Jerusalem, it is located in a neighbourhood built where a Palestinian village once stood before it was destroyed in the war surrounding Israel's independence in 1948.

The sports-crazed nation of Israel was in uproar on Wednesday over Argentina's abrupt cancellation of a World Cup warm-up match following pro-Palestinian protests, with some of the country's leaders accusing Lionel Messi and his teammates of caving to terrorism. Some waved the white and sky-blue striped jersey of Argentina's national team stained with red paint resembling blood. "And we will not relent until protection to be provided in the path of ending occupation", he added. "Health and common sense come first".

Player Gonzalo Higuain said in an interview with ESPN "I think at the end we were able to do the right thing".

Argentina open their Group D campaign in Russian Federation against Iceland on June 16.

He accused them of threatening players and their families, without providing any evidence.

Unconfirmed reports in Israeli media spoke of a possible rescheduling of the game - again in Jerusalem - but officials feared the high-profile cancellation would cause long-term damage to the Jewish state's global standing.

Despite the high Palestinian death toll, Hamas is declaring victory.

Israel has tried to discredit the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for years claiming it is anti-Semitic.

Palestinian protesters carry a wounded man during clashes with Israeli troops, on the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, on June 8, 2018. It said the Argentinian team responded to "creative campaigning" denouncing what it called Israel's "sports-washing of its crimes against Palestinians". Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed the area in a move that is not internationally recognised.

"There is no such state called Israel that could have a capital called Jerusalem", Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Reuters.

Last December, the General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to demand that President Donald Trump renounce his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital after the USA vetoed a similar measure.

After Muslim noon prayers Friday, thousands of Gaza residents began streaming toward five protest tent camps that had been erected more than two months ago, each several hundred yards from Gaza's perimeter fence.

Israeli soldiers on Friday killed four Palestinians and wounded more than 600 others protesting in Gaza along the fence that separates the territory from Israel, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
