MK Zoabi Suspended One Day over Altercation with Usher


The Knesset Ethics Committee decided, Tuesday, to ban Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (Balad New Democratic Assembly Arab party) for one day in connection with an altercation with a Knesset usher last July.

Zoabi pushed the usher away after being ordered out of the Knesset chamber for repeatedly interrupting a speech by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
