Avi Luzon, president of Israel’s football association, said Wednesday that Israel’s hosting of next year’s European under-21 football championship would not pose a security problem.

Israel was picked at random for the June tournament, and will play England, Norway,and Italy in its group.  The drawing was held by the UEFA in Tel Aviv less than two weeks after rockets lobbed by Hamas terrorists in Gaza caused residents of the city to keep close to bomb shelters.
