By Ercan Dogan

TOKYO (AA) - Algerian judoka Fethi Nourine withdrew from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to avoid meeting his Israeli opponent.

If Nourine had defeated Sudan’s Mohamed Abdalrasool in the men's 73kg class on Monday, he would have to face Israeli Tohar Butbul in the round of 32.

"Palestine's struggle is bigger than my struggle," he said.
