MK Aida Touma Sliman from the Joint List party outraged fellow lawmakers after she rallied for Israeli draft dodgers outside the Tel Hashomer recruitment base in Ramat Gan.

MK Oded Forer (Yisrael Beytenu) called on Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to open a criminal investigation against Touma-Suleiman and compared her to fellow Arab-Israeli provocateur Hanin Zoabi.

"After we haven't heard Zoabi's voice in recent weeks, she is being copied by her friend from the Joint List, Aida Touma Sliman, who only yesterday accused Israel of aggression against Syria and today rebels against IDF service," said Forer.

"Another member of the Joint List exploits his immunity to evade a five-year prison sentence for incitement to evade the draft," added Forer. Under Israeli law, MKs enjoy immunity from prosecution.

MK Forer attacked Sliman's party, Hadash, which condemned Saudi Arabia when it declared Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

"I suggest that she strengthen her warm ties with our enemies and simply join them in Syria and Lebanon. In the meantime, I have approached the attorney general to open an investigation into incitement to draft dodging," he said.
