The World Cup 2023 final came to a screeching halt in the 14th over of India’s innings when a spectator came running into the middle after bypassing the security officials to meet Virat Kohli at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The incident happened when Australia’s premier leg-spinner Adam Zampa was operating from one end.
The spectator was wearing a “Free Palestine” and “Stop bombing Palestine” T-shirt and therefore it can be concluded that he purposely tried to draw the eyeballs of people around the world to the ongoing crisis in Gaza between Israel and Hamas – a militant group.
Watch the video:
The ongoing conflict between the state of Israel and Hamas has claimed the lives of many innocent civilians, both in Israel and in Gaza (the region under the control of Hamas). The war started with Hamas militants infiltrating Israel and attacking as well as forcefully abducting its citizens.
Israel, under the leadership of its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, retaliated and started launching missiles towards Gaza which also resulted in the loss of civilian life. The armed struggle is far from over as Israel has vowed to “wipe Hamas” and is currently targeting southern Gaza.
