"In response, an Israeli aircraft fired a warning shot near the group", it said, without elaborating.

"Argentina is seven days from the World Cup". Messi has not spoken to the media and not with TyC Sports on this subject. Rajoub has long attempted to get FIFA, football's world governing body, and the International Olympic Committee to take action against Israel. "We had to cancel the game because we are humans before we are footballers".

"We don't have electricity or water or salaries", a woman demonstrator said.

On anti-semitism, Mason said that "anti-Israeli government feeling can spill over into anti-Jewish feeling" and that "the Jewish community feel anti-Israeli feeling is really anti-Jewish feeling".

The centre of Israel Palestine conflict- Jerusalem was only hope to maintain religious tolerance in the region and ensure equal peaceful religious practice for Jews, Muslims and Christians.

Tapia added that he had to prioritize the safety and health of his team ahead of the start of next week's tournament.

Opposition figures, however, accused Israel's headline-seeking sports minister Miri Regev of bringing on the politicisation of the sporting event by insisting on moving the game from Haifa to contested Jerusalem and by trying to orchestrate a politicised photo-op with Messi. But it wasn't about the location or politics, she said. Shortly after the victory both Barzilai and Regev said the competition would be held in Jerusalem.

He added: "The six countries of the G7 without the United States are a bigger market taken together than the American market". The G7 Summit has been largely overshadowed by Trump's attempts to organize a summit with North Korea in the coming days.

Israel has tried to discredit the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for years claiming it is anti-Semitic. "These are real threats".

Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie said before confirmation of the game's cancellation that he believed his country's players had been reluctant to travel to Israel for the match. "It was even borne of Messi's will to visit Jerusalem, kiss the Western Wall, and make it to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher".

US President Donald Trump's special envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, called on Sunday for Palestinians to replace longtime chief negotiator Dr. Saeb Erekat, saying decades of talks under his leadership have achieved nothing and accusing him of rhetoric which has only exacerbated the conflict and hindered progress towards peace.

The only ones turning Gaza residents' lives into a living hell are the PLO - in its role as the Palestinian Authority - which has cut down the Gazans' electricity; and Hamas, which urges them to rush the border fences. The match was hotly opposed by Palestinians, and a pro-Palestinian group protested outside of the Barcelona practice facility earlier this week. But she didn't, and not surprisingly, the majority of Israelis are now blaming her for their bitter disappointment at Argentina's decision.

On Wednesday, Rajoub thanked the Argentines for "following their conscience".

Following the move, Rajoub spoke with reporters in Ramallah.

A source at Argentina's football federation on Tuesday confirmed the cancellation of the worldwide friendly scheduled to be played Saturday at Teddy Kollek Stadium in Jerusalem. They followed their conscience.
