MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL-Ta'al) accused Israel of blatantly violating agreements with FIFA in denying six Palestinian soccer players from the Gaza Strip the right to travel to a tournament abroad.

Tibi called the ban a "flagrant violation of agreements with FIFA," and warned it could "endanger Israel's standing with the organization."

Tibi added that the Palestinian Soccer Association chairman, Jibril Rajoub, had turned to FIFA about the violation.
