MK Yuli Edelstein, chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, interrupted a member of the committee's remarks to ask who the speaker was.

"One moment - who are you?" Edelstein asks. The speaker introduces himself: "MK Yaron Levi (Yesh Atid). Pleased to meet you."

The mistake was quickly glossed over, as Edelstein said "That was certainly not supposed to happen. I sincerely apologize" and Levi answered lightly "It must be the recess, a lot of things can go happen during recess."

Edelstein's suspicions as to the identity of the speaker may stem from the nature of the committee in question, which is exposed to sensitive material.
