Pro-Gaza Fans Beat-Up Israeli Footie Stars

Israeli football stars had to deal with an occupation of their own when scores of pro-Palestinian fans invaded the pitch and attacked them.

These shocking pictures show the moment when fans, carrying Turkish and Palestinian flags, launched a brutal assault against Maccabi Haifa's players during a pre-season match against French club Lille in Austria.

Footie chiefs were forced to abandon the match in the 85th minute, following the altercation.

Security stewards calmed the situation, leading to several protesters being escorted out of the stadium.
