Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists succeeded, on Monday, in persuading the Catalonian city of Molins de Rei not to host a scheduled womenâ€™s waterpolo match between Spain and Israel.
The match was scheduled to take place on Tuesday afternoon, as part of a European championship that serves as a preliminary to the world water-polo league tournament.
The president of the Israeli Waterpolo Association, Revital Cohen Gluska, said she was informed of the decision on Monday morning, according to Days of Palestine.
