Drama broke out in the Kuwaiti parliament Wednesday when Sunni parliamentary member Hamad Al Hoshani and Shiite member Abdulhamid al-Dashty after Hoshani made a negative comment about the Saudi-led airstrikes happening in Yemen right now. 

According to Arabic media reports, al-Dashty spoke at a Kuwaiti parliamentary session about the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen, ciritcizing the efforts. 

When he did, Hoshani attacked with his own iqal.

For those non-Arab readers out there, the iqal is the black rope that goes on top of an Arab man's headscarf to hold it down. But in this Kuwaiti brawl, it was delightfully used as a weapon. 

We don't have any video evidence of this one, but for your enjoyment, here's a Kuwaiti parliament session from 2011 that ended in about the same way.
