The Palestine Football Association has called on football’s international governing body, FIFA, to sanction Israeli teams over the war in Gaza.

The Palestine Football Association asked for its proposal, which it said six other member nations had endorsed, to be on the agenda at FIFA’s upcoming congress in May.

Israel’s football association on Wednesday responded to the petition by saying it had “always followed FIFA regulations and always will.” The PFA’s statement, released on Tuesday, said “the loss of innocent lives, including no less than 99 footballers” and the “destruction of residential units… are clear violations of international laws.”
