A big commotion at halftime of the game between Bnei Reina and Beitar Jerusalem. It all started after Jordan Shoah's advantageous goal just before extra time. Objects were thrown by a Reina fan, who was sitting in the grandstand, at the Beitar Jerusalem fans sitting below. Very quickly, objects began to be thrown by both sides, and the commander of the Nof Hagalil station, Superintendent Gil Muallem, ordered a police and Border Police force to go up to the stands to put things in order.
Police cleared the grandstand after objects were thrown, including a large garbage can, while Beitar fans threw chairs at Reina fans. But the incident did not end there. Dozens of Reina fans jumped over the fence of the opposite stand and tried to reach the other side of the field to confront Beitar fans. Security and Border Police forces were called to the scene to arrest them and they were returned to the stands.

The match observer, Yair Galili, received videos of the events and everything will be noted in a report he will submit to the prosecutor of the Football Association. Due to the events, it was decided by the commander of the force to place dozens of police officers on the pitch in front of the stands of the fans.
