Moment's silence confirmed ahead of quarterfinals

World Rugby and the France 2023 Organising Committee can confirm that a moment’s silence will be observed ahead of the World Cup 2023 quarterfinals this weekend as a mark of solidarity with all those affected by the tragic events in Israel and Gaza.

Fighting broke out over the weekend in Israel after Hamas launched a surprise attack, killing more than 1,200 Israelis and taking an estimated 150 people hostage.

The assault signals a new bloody chapter in a decades-long battle over land and sovereignty.

Israeli Defense Forces mounted a swift response, triggering a war between the nation and Hamas, which controls the besieged Gaza Strip. To date at least 2,800 people have died on both sides.
