In honor of "Blind Day," Israel's day of identification with the blind community, MKs played sports with blind people on Monday.

Among the MKs wearing blindfolds and playing Goalball, a team sport for blind athletes, were MK Uri Ariel (National Union) who organized the event, MK Eitan Cabel (Labor), MK Orly Levy (Israel Beiteinu), MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), and others.

The blind players beat the MKs 7:0.
