Activists from SunBird Team stand up against the players, who will travel to play with the Israeli occupation. Activists condemn the players about how they are proud of playing with a brutal occupation existing illegally at the expense of innocents’ rights.
Hence, the Palestinians’ role depends on showing and exposing the reality of the Israeli occupation.
Are you proud of playing with a brutal occupation existing illegally at the expense of innocents' rights?! Do u have any idea about young Palestinians who were prevented from their love of sport and couldn't travel because the israeli snipers shot their limbs with no pity?! pic.twitter.com/Jf9F38Nwk8

Shame on you, it is the occupied Palestinian territories that you will travel to play on. The Israeli occupation deprived the Palestinians of their land and playgrounds and destroyed their lives by physical disability them.#IsraeliCrimes#FreePalestine 🇵🇸 pic.twitter.com/nvEt9oavRA
