National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine condemns Israeli-Palestinian football match, calls for an investigation

Headline: "The National Committee Against Normalization [in Palestine] condemned the 'Palestinian-Israeli' football match"
     "The Executive Office of the National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine published an announcement in which it condemned the participation of children from the West Bank in a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children, held by the Peres Center for Peace at the Gaza envelope (i.e., in Israel near the border with the Gaza Strip), near a Zionist kibbutz, which constitutes normalization [with Israel].
Secretary General of the National Committee [Against Normalization] Jihad Uweida said the committee's Executive Office was stunned by the timing and location of the match, at a time when the blood of our people and children in the Gaza Strip and of the Martyrs (Shahids) of the sports movements has not yet dried...
The Executive Office of the National Committee [Against Normalization] called on the heads of the Palestinian sports [community] and the Palestinian leadership to discover who is behind this 'normalization match' at such a time, and who benefits from holding meetings of this kind.
Uweida emphasized that the National Committee Against Normalization is surprised and astonished that while it is conducting an international campaign for expelling Israeli sports from the international sports system, and after international sports organizations expressed their intention of boycotting this entity [Israel], a Palestinian party would do this entity a free service."
