MK Orit Zuaretz (Kadima) called on Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein on Wednesday to open an in-depth investigation into MK Haneen Zoabi's (Balad) involvement in violence perpetrated against IDF naval commandos during the May 31 Israeli raid of the Turkish ship the Mavi Marmara

Zoabi was aboard the vessel attempting to break the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip on May 31 when IHH activists on the ship clashed violently with IDF soldiers.

Zuaretz's request for an investigation of Zoabi came after Army Radio released video footage proving that the Balad MK knew IHH activists aboard the Mavi Marmara were armed with metal pipes and that she attempted to prevent soldiers from evacuating injured from the ship.
