MK Haneen Zoabi said she expected the Knesset to vote to strip her of parliamentary rights, speaking in an interview with Channel 2 Tuesday evening.

The law, initiated by MK Michael Ben-Ari, was under discussion by the Knesset Tuesday. MK Yariv Levin told Zoabi that "you don't have a place in the Knesset," and "you do not deserve Israeli citizenship."

The law comes after Zoabi's participation in the May 31 Gaza flotilla, which provoked an Israeli raid on the ship and left nine Turkish citizens dead.
