The English Premier League, EPL, have released a powerful statement amid the ongoing Israel-Palestine War.
The EPL called for peace, while condemning the horrific and brutal acts.
Reports had suggested over 2500 people have lost their lives since the beginning of the conflict last weekend.
Israel reports that 1200 people have been killed by Hamas’s deadly attacks, while Gaza claims over 1300 have died following the retaliatory strikes.
Reacting to the development, the English top-flight league released a statement on Thursday, sympathising with the victims and their families:
“The Premier League is shocked and saddened by the escalating crisis in Israel and Gaza, and strongly condemns the horrific and brutal acts of violence against innocent civilians. We hope for peace, and our heartfelt sympathies are with the victims, their families and the communities impacted.”
Meanwhile, the English Football League have also announced that a period of silence will be observed across fixtures in League One and League Two this weekend.
