Yair Netanyahu, son of presumed incoming prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is ordered out of court after an outburst that includes calling former Knesset member Stav Shaffir “a bitch.”

Netanyahu and Shaffir are suing each other.

Shaffir is seeking NIS 263,000 ($76,600) in damages for Twitter posts in 2020 she claims were slander and sexual harassment.

Netanyahu has sued her in return for NIS 300,000 ($87,385) over things she wrote back at the time and in other past social media posts.

Netanyahu’s outburst came amid the opening of the evidence stage, where he repeatedly interrupted Shaffir’s testimony.

Netanyahu also accuses her of having had “an Arab boyfriend” and stealing millions in public funds.
