German fans subject Israeli footballer to Holocaust songs, Heil Hitler salute

   Mar 1, 1:30 pm

London, Mar.1 (ANI): German football authorities have promised to stamp out racism in the stands after an Israeli football player was subjected to Heil Hitler! salutes and sordid chants about the Holocaust at a training game.

Germany's Football Federation (DFB) said it 'will not tolerate anti-Semitic or racist attacks' after a small group of people verbally abused Israeli player Itay Shechter during a Kaiserslautern practice session.

According to the Daily Mail, the incident took place on Sunday, a day after relegation-threatened Kaiserslautern's 4-0 defeat at Mainz 05.

The Israeli embassy in Berlin made a complaint about the abuse suffered by one of its citizens.

Police have launched an investigation to identify those involved while the club, which has called on fans to help identify the people involved, condemned the incident saying those responsible were not football fans. (ANI)
