MK Carmel Shama-Hachohen (Likud) requested on Thursday for the Knesset's discussion of the Ofer Brother Group's trade with Iran be moved to the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

"In light of the sensitive aspects of this issue, it is necessary to hold the discussion in a closed forum in order to allow for parliamentary supervision and a clarification of the facts," Shama-Hacohen said.

The matter had previously been discussed in a meeting of the Economics Committee, which Shama-Hacohen chairs, that was abruptly interrupted after he received a mysterious note. The Likud MK has refused to divulge the note's contents.
