The English Premier League has said players, managers and match officials will wear black armbands and observe a moment’s silence in honour of victims of the conflict between Israel and Hamas.
The conflict has seen the death of over 2,000 people with over 4,000 injured since Hamas attacked Israel on Saturday.
In a statement, the Premier League aid matches slated to be played between Saturday and Monday will pay respect to the victims of the conflict.
The statement read, “The Premier League is shocked and saddened by the escalating crisis in Israel and Gaza, and strongly condemns the horrific and brutal acts of violence against innocent civilians.
“We hope for peace, and our heartfelt sympathies are with the victims, their families and the communities impacted.
“As a mark of respect for all those affected, Premier League players, managers and match officials will wear black armbands and observe a moment’s silence at the fixtures taking place from Saturday 21 to Monday 23 October.
“The League will also make a donation to the British Red Cross to support the aid efforts helping those in urgent need.”
