A video circulating on social media showed that the deputy close to the Muslim Brotherhood party verbally attacked Musa and abused her.

Tunisian media said that Moussi called on its parliamentary bloc (16 seats) to enter an open sit-in inside the parliament with the aim of toppling the "Brotherhood."

This was in addition to boycotting the parliamentary session to boost the ministerial amendments proposed by Prime Minister Hisham Al-Mechishi, calling on all opposition parties to stop the dangers of the Ennahda movement and its supporters.

It is noteworthy that the opposition MP had repeatedly accused the Dignity Coalition of promoting violence and inciting ill-will against MPs in the country.

The Brotherhood’s coalition deputies assaulted the Democratic Movement’s deputy, Anwar Al-Shahd, physically in early December.

Attacks inside Parliament have gone up in recent days, and in some cases death threats were made to political opponents of the "Brotherhood" regime.
