These latest events occurred amid the daily violence on the Israel-Gaza border, orchestrated by Hamas, the Islamic terror group that rules the Strip and calls for Israel's destruction.

In a video message, Obeid appeals directly to team captain Lionel Messi, "because he is very popular in Palestine, particularly in the Gaza Strip".
