Israel bans entry for most players on Gaza soccer team

Israel is denying entry to most players on a Gaza soccer team scheduled to play a West Bank team later this week.


Israel's Shin Bet internal security agency says a security check turned up information pointing to "most" of the team's "links to terrorism." It did not elaborate.


Gisha, an Israeli rights group, says an Israeli court sided with the state on Monday, meaning Wednesday's scheduled game is unlikely to take place.
