Yisrael Beytenu MK Moshe Matalon launched a blistering attack on Balad MK Haneen Zoabi for her participation in the Mavi Marmara ship, which IDF soldiers stormed in 2010 to enforce a naval blockade of the Gaza Strip, killing nine Turks.

"How can it be that in a civilized country Haneen Zoabi is not taken to court for her actions while in Turkey they hold a show trial against our commanders and soldiers in absentia, after a just and necessary operation in the defense of the State of Israel?" Matalon asked. "It is good that we acted, it's good that we refused to apologize to the Turks and it will also be good if we take Zoabi and her partners in crime to court for their support of terrorism and for harming our soldiers and commanders. There is no doubt that the place of Zoabi and [Balad MK Jamal] Zahalka is behind bars."
