Israel Soccer Association Delays Season Due to Rockets


The Israel Football Association (IFA) on Thursday postponed the start of the new soccer premier league season scheduled for this weekend, due to the danger posed by Hamas terrorists firing rockets on Israeli civilian centers.

"We have cancelled all matches following instructions from the civil defense authority," an IFA official told AFP, without specifying a new date for the season to begin. The 2014-2015 first division season had been due to begin on Saturday.
