The Israel Football Association announced on Tuesday that all of this weekend's fixtures will be postponed due to the security situation in the south of the country. The Premier League and National League teams had no games scheduled as their winter break will only end next week, but all of the matches in Israel's four bottom divisions will be rescheduled. "I requested that our match against Nes Tziona be postponed as we barely managed to train this week," said Hapoel Ashkelon coach Shiye Feigenbaum, who held his team's training session at National Stadium in Ramat Gan on Tuesday. "We're doing Hamas's work. This isn't what I wanted," Feigenbaum said about having to train out of town. "On the other hand, we had no other option. After a rocket falls in your penalty box there's not much else you can do."
