A Football match of two local Palestinian teams was suspended on Friday after Israeli soldiers fired teargas canisters into Al-Khader Stadium, to the south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank.

Sa’di Hmeidan, a local sports official, told WAFA that Israeli soldiers fired teargas canisters inside the stadium during a match between the football teams of Al-Abidia and Doha villages as part of a youth football league. He said some of the players sustained suffocation from the teargas, causing the match to be suspended.

The match was resumed in about an hour.
