Supreme Court Petition on MK Zoabi's Flotilla Trip

On Wednesday the Supreme Court heard an appeal regarding Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi's trip aboard the Mavi Marmara ship in 2010. The Balad party member was accused of participating in the attack on Israeli sailors who prevented the flotilla from docking into Gaza. The Supreme Court rejected condemning MK Zoabi or banning her from running in a second Knesset term. Petitioners Barch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir filed an appeal and argued that there was enough evidence to prove MK Zoabi's guilt.
