World Cup Qualifier: Palestinian supporters rally, Australia donates to Gaza

Thousands of Palestinian supporters filled Kuwait’s Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium for Palestine’s World Cup qualifier against Australia. 

The match, Palestine’s first in front of fans since the conflict with Israel began, saw defender Harry Souttar secure a 1-0 win for Australia. 

The crowd displayed Palestinian flags and keffiyeh scarves, emphasizing a symbolic message rather than focusing on the match outcome. In a notable gesture, the Australian team announced a portion of their match fees would be donated to humanitarian causes in Gaza, addressing the complexity of the geopolitical situation in the region.
