MK Michael Ben-Ari and his Strong Israel party co-founder Itamar Ben Gvir joined a group of some 30 right-wing activists attempting to physically block Balad MK Haneen Zoabi from leaving the High Court of Justice in Jerusalem on Thursday.

Security personnel safely smuggled Zoabi out a back exit.

The court had met to discuss the legality of the Central Election Committee's decision to ban Zoabi from running.
