Football stages comeback in Gaza

Football stages comeback in Gaza:

AlJazeeraEnglish April 11, 2010In the Gaza Strip, most football clubs are run by Fatah supporters. When the rival Hamas took control of the Palestinian enclave in 2007, one of the victims was the game itself.

Political disputes still run deep between the two groups, but they have reached an agreement to bring football back to Gaza.

Deprived of official matches for the three years, Gazans are happy to see the return of the Palestinian Cup.

Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman reports.

Comment: How soon will it be before Israel bombards the Gaza sports facilities again? They used to be a regular target for Israel. I saw no mention of that in this report, Maybe they forgot.
