In a Knesset committee meeting on the alleged attack on a Knesset usher by MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad), MK Alex Miller (Israel Beiteinu) on Tuesday accused the Balad MK of brutality and called for her to be tried in court.

"MK Zoabi tried to bring the violent spirit [that was present] on the [Mavi] Marmara to the full Knesset," Miller said. "She acted violently and with brutality toward Knesset Ushers and therefore she should stand trial as if she attacked police officer in the line of duty."
