Palestinian Football Association says official's Brazil trip blocked by Israel

Published: 06.09.14, 01:04 / Israel News

Israel has prevented a senior Palestinian soccer delegate from travelling to this month's World Cup in Brazil, his federation said on Sunday.

 

  

The PFA, in what it described as the third such case, said its deputy general-secretary Mohammad Ammassi was denied permission by Israel to travel from Gaza to the West Bank, from where he would cross to Jordan and on to Brazil.

 

"This is not the first time Mr Amassi has been denied a travel permit," the PFA said in a statement.

 

"Israeli authorities have nothing against him, which clearly makes this rejection a temperamental and arbitrary measure that does not help the efforts to find a solution to the situation of Palestinian football." (Reuters)
