On Monday, July 3, 2006, a street-football team made up of young Israelis and Palestinians played a local side in Mariannenplatz, Kreuzberg, Berlin, as part of the street football world festival 06.

The team was in Germany thanks to the Peres Center for Peace’s ‘Twinned Peace Sport Schools’ initiative, which brings Palestinian and Israeli children from disadvantaged communties together for sports training and peace education.

At the game, Dropping Knowledge met Peres Center Sports Unit directors Roni Asoulin from Israel and Anwar Zaidan from Palestine, and shot this video.
