Spain Bans Fans from Waving Palestinian Flags at Macabbi TA Game

Barcelona authorities on Tuesday banned fans from waving Palestinian flags during a game between Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Regal FC Barcelona in the Euroleague on Thursday.

The move was decided upon after various incidents in which fans held up Palestinian flags during games, wore keffiyehs (the traditional Palestinian headscarves), and attempted to storm the court.

According to the Barcelona sports daily “Sport”, Mossad agents will be positioned in the stands during the game and will stop any fan who will try to

raise a Palestinian flag or attempt any provocation against Israel. The fans will be prohibited from carrying signs in Arabic or any signs with pro-Palestinian messages.
