Jewish National Front's Baruch Marzel and a number of his supporters planned to attend a soccer match scheduled for Monday night between Bnei Sakhnin and Beitar Jerusalem, set to be hosted in the Israeli-Arab city of Sakhnin, according to Army Radio. Marzel's group planned to spread right-wing propaganda at the stadium for the purpose of incitement, according to the group. Matches between the two clubs have a history of violence between fans. Beitar Jerusalem has never employed an Arab soccer player, and its fans have been on record saying that they will never allow an Arab to play for their club.
