The Knesset Ethics Committee suspended MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) from the plenum for one day on Tuesday, as punishment for pushing a Knesset usher.

In July, during a speech by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Zoabi was asked to leave the plenum because she was interrupting, and shoved the usher that escorted her.

Although the Knesset House Committee discussed the situation that week, and Zoabi apologized to the usher, MK Danny Danon (Likud) sent a complaint to the Ethics Committee.
