Al-Jazira Sports Club in the Gaza Strip held a Paralympic sports event for Gaza’s disabled athletes.
A number of the players are heroes and have received advanced centers in the previous championships in Arab and Asian countries
Since 2012, players have been prohibited from competing in foreign tournaments and athletic competition because of the Israeli closure of the border crossings and the Apartheid siege of the Gaza Strip.
In Israel, meanwhile, the Israeli soccer team Beitar Jerusalem has denied access to the newspaper Haaretz to cover its events from the official news media sports box because of criticism and stories showcasing the soccer team’s apartheid and racist policies and practices against Christian and Muslim Palestinians.
