At World Cup, England fan shocks Israeli correspondent with call to ‘free Palestine’

An Israel reporter was surprised when interviewing jubilant England fans last night after their World Cup win over Senegal.

The reporter for the Kan public broadcaster was talking to a fan identified as Harry Hatton when he shouted, “It’s coming home! But more importantly, free Palestine.”

The reporter throws his hands up in desperation, saying, “Come on, let’s talk football.”

Israeli reporters in Qatar have faced frequent instances of anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian calls at the World Cup, the first held in the Middle East.
