The Israel Police prepared in special preparation for the Tel Aviv derby held today (Saturday) at the Bloomfield Stadium, but even that did not prevent scary images before the game - when dozens of Maccabi Tel Aviv fans moved from gate 8 to gate 11 in a dangerous manner.

As I recall, Maccabi Tel Aviv fans were only assigned gates 10-11, and many bought a ticket for gate 8 - and wanted to sit with their yellow friends.

During the activity, a suspect was observed by police forces in possession of various pyrotechnic devices.

The suspect was arrested for questioning and a search of his vehicle yielded approximately 90 flares and 24 smoke grenades, including an IDF smoke grenade intended for use during the game. Tomorrow the suspect, a 24-year-old resident of Harish, will be brought before a judge at the request of the police to extend his detention.

Maccabi Tel Aviv fans complained before The game is about the attitude at the entrances, and one of the fan organizations wrote: "When you ask the fans in a special letter not to behave violently, it is appropriate that you do not put us in pens like a herd of cows and treat us like dogs."
