Turner incidents: ICC commutes penalty by three games for Maccabi Haifa midfielder • The appeal of the Russian midfielder, who played for Hapoel Be'Sheva, was not accepted

The Supreme Court of the Israel Football Association decided on Sunday morning to slightly shorten the suspension sentence of Maccabi Haifa midfielder Bassem Za'arora, and ruled that he will be out for 12 games instead of the original decision, which was 15 games of suspension.

The decision was made by three judges, headed by the head of the court, Prof. Miguel Deutsch, with Adv. Ben Zion Farhi and Adv. Nazi Halabi accepting the unanimous decision.

Regarding Hapoel Sheva midfielder Shafi Suleimanov, it was decided not to commute his sentence and he remained on 12 games of suspension. Even so, Suleimanov is not expected to continue in the Negev capital next season, so the punishment will mainly hurt the player and not the southern club.
