Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called Sunday for uprooting violence from soccer stadiums, saying that if violence continued, the soccer matches could not. 

"We have to eradicate violence from soccer stadiums," he said at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting. "We can't see kicking and fists and these harsh words. We want to see soccer. If there will be violence, there will not be soccer."

The comments came in response to a brawl that broke out at a soccer game in Ramat Gan Friday, which lead to the cancelation of all games on Saturday.

Four people were lightly injured in the fight that broke out among players in a game between Hapoel Ramat Gan and Bnei Lod at Ramat Gan’s Weiner Stadium. Police detained two people involved in the violence.
