Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with A-G Avichai Mandelblit on Saturday to inquire as to what legal action could be taken against the MKs who visited the families of terrorists who murdered Israeli.

Netanyahu also presented a personal complaint to the Knesset Ethics committee, alongside Speaker of the Knesset, Yuli Edelstein.

Avigdor Lieberman, Chairman of Yisrael Beytenu responded to Netanyahu's move with a strongly-worded message on his Facebook page:

"Suddenly everyone remembered the problem with Arab members of Knesset; MK's are saying that they have no place in government and that they have lost their minds. And yet, less than a couple of weeks ago, these same people opposed my legislation that would exclude Haneen Zoabi and her friends from the next elections and prevent the Supreme Court from undoing this decision."
