MK: Zoabi Openly Identified with Terrorism


MK Hanin Zoabi of Balad openly identified with terrorists, MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beyteinu) accused Wednesday during an Elections Committee hearing. He cited her participation in an attempt by Turkish citizens aboard the Mavi Marmara to forcibly violate the IDF’s naval blockade of Hamas.

Those aboard the ship attacked IDF soldiers who boarded the vessel, seriously wounding multiple soldiers. The attack ended when a soldier opened fire, killing nine.

Zoabi remained with the ship’s passengers even after the attack on soldiers, Rotem said.
