Beitar Jerusalem Fans Protest During Team Practice

Dozens of fans of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer team demonstrated during a team practice on Friday morning, in protest of the team's hiring of the two Muslim players from Chechnya.

Police arrested one of the fans who allegedly tried to enter the field and attacked a security guard who tried to stop him. The guard did not require medical treatment. Another fan was arrested on suspicion of throwing a rock into the parking lot in which vehicles belonging to the Beitar players were parked.
