Proliferation of arms | Football match in Tartus turns into battle among the fans

In the light of proliferation of arms and growing security chaos throughout Syria, reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that yesterday’s football match between Al-Sahel SC and Jableh SC within the Syrian Premier League on the “Municipal Stadium” in Tartus city experienced riots.

 

According to SOHR sources, a fan of Jableh SC threw a stun grenade on the fans of Al-Sahel SC in the 63rd minuet, just after the Jableh SC had scored the equalizing goal, injuring several people and igniting clashes with white arms between the fans of both teams. Regime security forces later interfered and fired bullets in the air in order to disperse the crowds.

 

It is worth noting that the matches of the Syrian Premier League are played with public presence despite coronavirus outbreaks across all Syrian provinces.
