The Moroccan team celebrates their historic win at the World Cup by hoisting a Palestinian flag.
As the team gathers on the pitch to celebrate, they raise aloft a Palestinian flag alongside several Moroccan ones, the latest sign of solidarity with the Palestinians at the first World Cup held in the Middle East.
The move comes despite Morocco’s increasingly close relations with Israel after signing the Abraham Accords that normalized ties.
Morocco defeated Spain in a penalty shootout to become the first Arab nation to reach the last eight of a World Cup, sparking jubilation across the Arab world.
