No one was injured in the fight.

Reports say the fight began over the refusal of a member to apologise over unwarranted remarks during a session to debate proposed amendments to the constitution.

“There was a verbal shouting match that turned into a fist fighting by several deputies. The behavior is unacceptable to our people and harms our country’s reputation,” said Khalil Atiyeh, a member of parliament who witnessed the session.
