After 10-year suspension… Algerian judoka Nourine: I’m proud of my decision

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Algerian judoka Fetih Nourine, who withdrew from the Tokyo Olympics to avoid facing an Israeli opponent and got suspended by the International Judo Federation (IJF) said that he is proud of his decision.

“I am proud and I’ll take every opportunity to expose the zionist entity and defend our rights in Palestine.”

Nourine added that he doesn’t regret his decision, insisting that “the IJF and international organizations are complicit with the zionist entity and cover its crimes.”

Nourine announced his retirement noting that it is a natural decision because the IJF’s punishment against him is too long and extends to long years, which automatically means that he will not be able to go back to competitions. However, Nourine added that he will be a coach in an Algerian club.
