The Israeli parliament of theĀ Knesset rebuked Palestinian MK Hanin Zoabi Ā over her remarks about Israeli soldiers who participated in the Mavi Maramra attack, in which she described them as murderers.
The committee of behavior at the Knesset said that Zoabi’s remarks were “extreme, provokable and untrue,” according to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency.
Zoabi described Israeli soldiers as “murderers” in aĀ Knesset session held to discuss Israeli Ā reconciliation with Turkey.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered to accelerate procedures to removeĀ Zoabi from Knesset, saying that she “overruns all limits with her remarks, no place for her in Knesset.”
