While Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh was speaking about the "Beit Hanun massacre" at the Knesset on Monday, MK Muhammad Barakei began waving a picture of a bleeding Palestinian child wounded by an IDF shell. A sharp confrontation broke out between the two men, during which Sneh told Barakei, "There is a difference of cultures between us, since we apologize when our soldiers harm innocents, while the terrorists are proud of their actions against us." Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik then removed Barakei from the Knesset plenum.
