The Knesset’s Ethics Committee has announced sanctions against far-right Likud MK Nissim Vaturi, who falsely accused Arab Israeli MKs Aida Touma-Sliman and Iman Khatib-Yasin of supporting Hamas.

Vaturi will be banned from speaking in the next 10 Knesset sessions.

Also last week, Vaturi was temporarily banned from Facebook for calling for Gaza to be burned down.
