A brawl erupted in the Knesset plenum on Wednesday afternoon, after Joint List MK Hannen Zoabi indicated that the Israeli commandos involved in the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident were "murderers."

The Israeli Arab lawmaker was expected to issue an apology for her participation in the infamous Gaza-bound flotilla, however she stated that, "Those who kill must apologize, you must apologize."

In light of her remarks, various other MKs swarmed the Knesset podium yelling condemnations of Zoabi and attempting to remove her from the stand.
