The Bar Association meeting on Friday to discuss budget funds and estimates erupted into chaos and physical altercations.

The disagreement led to fistfights, ultimately resulting in the meeting's adjournment.

The circulating footage showed chaotic scenes during the general assembly meeting, with verbal altercations and physical clashes involving fists and chairs.

The former Bar Association President, Mazen Irsheidat, stated that failing to adjourn the meeting immediately after approving the budgets opened the door to "problems," which escalated into physical fights.

He blamed the incident on the failure to adjourn the meeting immediately after the budget approval.

Similar "riots" previously occurred during the Bar Association elections on May 25, 2015.
