ISRAEL-HAMAS WAR UEFA POSTPONE EURO 2024 ISRAEL-SWITZERLAND MATCH
The Israeli-Hamas war has forced the postponement of nine European soccer matches scheduled to take place in Israel. According to the BBC, UEFA has decided to postpone all matches in Israel for the next two weeks and reschedule them at a later date. The decision was made in light of the security situation due to the Israel-Hamas war.
The European Football Championship 2024 (Euro 2024) qualifier between Israel and Switzerland, scheduled for July 13, has been postponed, as well as both the Israel-Estonia and Israel-Germany matches in the 2025 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying groups, scheduled for July 13 and July 18, respectively.
Six matches in Group 12 of the UEFA European Under-17 Championship 2024 qualifying tournament between Israel, Belgium, Gibraltar and Wales, which were scheduled to take place between November 11 and 17 (local time), have also been canceled.
“We will continue to monitor the situation closely and remain in contact with the teams before deciding on new match dates,” UEFA said .The number of casualties in the region has exploded since Hamas, the militant group 카지노사이트 that rules the Palestinian territory of Gaza, launched a major offensive against Israel over the past seven days, prompting Israel to launch retaliatory strikes. The Israeli-Hamas conflict has resulted in 700 Israeli deaths and more than 2,000 injuries, with 313 Palestinians killed and nearly 2,000 injured. The number of casualties is expected to rise as both sides continue to engage and many more are injured.
