PM calls on FIFA to condemn Israeli killing of Palestinian footballer

RAMALLAH, Thursday, December 22, 2022 (WAFA) – Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has called on the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to condemn the Israeli killing of Ahmad Atef Mustafa Daraghma, a Palestinian soccer player, who died from very serious wounds resulting from Israeli army gunfire.

Shtayyeh strongly slammed the Israeli crime that resulted in the killing of Daraghma, a soccer player with the Thaqafi Soccer Team of Tulkarem, was hit by live rounds in the back and feet, as confrontations erupted when a sizable Israeli army force swept into the eastern part of Nablus to provide protection for Israeli settlers who stormed Jospeh’s Tomb.

The Prime Minister called on international rights' organization to take responsibility to stop the field Israeli assassinations against Palestinians and hold the Israeli occupation accountable for its crimes.

The number of Palestinians who have been slain by Israeli army gunfire in the occupied territories since the start of 2022 reaches 224, including 53 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.
