Israeli forces raid stadium in Jerusalem, prevent holding of sports league season

JERUSALEM, Israeli intelligence, backed by Israeli special forces, raided Burj Al-Laqlaq stadium in the Old City of Jerusalem and removed all banners put up inside the stadium for the Jerusalem league season, which was expected to kick off today.

Israeli special forces reportedly attacked Palestinians present inside, beating up a number of them before completely evacuating the stadium.

This came only a day after Israeli forces banned a lecture which was also supposed to take place at Burj al-Laqlaq community center to discuss the Israeli policy of home demolitions in the old city of Jerusalem.
