The scary situation unfolding in Israel forces the game between Maccabi Raanana and Maccabi Kiryat Motzkin to an early stop

By Johnny Askounis/

A game of Israel’s second division was abandoned midway through the fourth quarter due to a missile alarm.

The Maccabi Raanana and Maccabi Kiryat Motzkin players facing each other in the Liga Leumit play-out fixture and everyone present rushed to safety, many players even lied down on the court after the missile fired in the area.

The Maccabi Hod Hasharon versus Ramat Hasharon game was suspended as well but resumed and was eventually completed.
