Outraged MK Anastacia Michaeli (Israel Beiteinu) threw water at MK Ghaleb Majadele (Labor) after he insulted her during a Knesset Education Committee meeting.

Michaeli said that Majadele needs to learn how to speak during discussions, and how to speak to women. She also that he disrespected the Knesset.

For his part, the Majadele said that never before had an MK poured water over a fellow-MK. According to the Labor MK, he asked her not to interrupt him and asked her to "shut up please."

Majadele said that the Education Committee would refer the matter to the Ethics Committee.
