Abstract (Document Summary)

Yossi Abuskis, the Hapoel captain, was injured by the device in an alarming incident during Sunday's 1-1 drawwith Beitar Jerusalem at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.

"Unfortunately, a hatred exists between supporters of Hapoel Tel Aviv and Beitar Jerusalem. According to our fans, it was someone supporting the other club who did it, and the police are now investigating at our request. Our fans are moderate people who are looking for peace and nothing like this has ever happened before. That's why we are very curious about who really did it. Of course, we cannot rule out entirely that it came from our fans, but we believe it may well have been the work of infiltrators.

Whether responsibility for Sunday's incident lay with supporters of Hapoel or Beitar, who have a longstanding political enmity, is a secondary consideration for Rangers. The Ibrox club will despatch Laurence McIntyre, their head of security, to meet the Israelis in the new year, and he is likely to question just how a stun grenade came to be smuggled inside the ground.
