A group of people, including right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir, shouted epithets in the direction of Zoabi’s car when she pulled up to the station, and called her a terrorist.

The Knesset Ethics Committee recently suspended Zoabi from participating in debates on the Knesset floor for six months.
