Italian football fans give israeli team Nazi (Roman) salute and boo Israel national anthem



THE INDEPENDENT – Italian football fans have been photographed giving the Nazi salute and spitting at Jewish fans during their team’s match against Israel, the country’s football association has said. Police officers attending the World Cup qualifier between the two sides  at the Sammy Ofer stadium in Haifa removed two Italian fans from the away end of the ground, after they were spotted aiming the offensive gesture at Israeli players.

A large group of fans were recorded booing during the Israeli national anthem, before shouting anti-semitic slurs at Jewish fans as play got underway and spitting in their direction.
