Chaos erupts in the gallery above the Knesset plenum as activists and relatives of hostages in Gaza throw yellow paint at the glass windows, while some cover their hands in yellow, the color that has become associated with the plight of the captives.

Security personnel immediately confront the protesters, pushing them away from the windows and escorting them out.

The incident takes place as legislators in the plenum below vote on a climate-related bill.

Several oppositions members in the plenum raise their hands in solidarity with the protesters in the gallery above.
