On 7 June 2023, the members and employees of Lajee Center participated in a solidarity activity for the prisoner Walid Duqa and the prisoner Aasif Al Rafai, along with all sick prisoners who are subjected to the crime of medical negligence as a means of killing prisoners by the occupation within the Zionist prisons.

Football Academy (Lajee-Celtic)

The Football Academy organizes football training sessions for children aged 5 to 17 years at Lajee’s football field. The children are divided into three different age groups. Additionally, the academy offers advanced training sessions for professional players aged 18 to 28 years.

Earlier this year, Lajee-Celtic Club applied for 17 visas to the United Kingdom for an event highlighting Palestine. Britain rejected 15 out of the 17 players. Despite this political and racial discrimination, Lajee-Celtic insisted on participating and representing Palestine in the anti-discrimination and anti-racism football league organized by the Celtic-Glasgow Fans Association on Scottish soil in June 2023. The league put out a message asking for any Palestinian youth from the diaspora to join the two players who managed to secure visas from Lajee (Aboud Al Azza and Mohammad Shaibat). A Palestinian team was formed, including participants from Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Arab Maghreb. Lajee-Celtic team secured third place in the league, and player Mohammad Shaibat was honored with the Best Player award in the league.
