A joint team of Israeli and Palestinian women will take part in this weekend’s netball tournament in Eilat.

The tournament will be held for the fifth time in Israel’s southernmost city and the Peres Center for Peace has assembled a squad of players from Israel and the West Bank for the first time, with the women training together ahead of the event.

“The team’s participation in the Netball tournament shows the importance of coexistence and the power of sport and the use of sport as an international language,” said the Peres Center.

Over 2,000 players from across the world will travel to Eilat to take part in the event.
