Poland: Israeli soccer team attacked by skinheads after game

Via Jerusalem Post:
Two staff members of soccer club Hapoel Petah Tikva were slightly injured in Poland after being attacked by masked hooligans in what the Israeli Embassy said Thursday was an “anti-Semitic incident.” The attack occurred on Wednesday evening in Suchocin, a town near Warsaw, following a friendly between Petah Tikva and a local Polish club, MKS Ciechanow.

“After the match we went to the lobby of the hotel while a couple of our staff members were collecting the equipment. Around 15-20 skinheads came out of the woods and raced onto the field and began punching and kicking them,” said Petah Tikva coach Oren Krispin.

“One of the players in the lobby noticed this and we all ran out to help. Once the skinheads saw us they ran away.”

Club staff members Moshe Harel and Oz Batzon both suffered slight face injuries.
