Israeli PM’s Family Receives Death Threat and Bullet in Post

Israeli police said Thursday that Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s family has received a death threat and a bullet in the post.

This is the second such warning against the Bennett’s family, according to police, which said that the last threat warning was sent on Tuesday.

“We are taking the threats seriously, despite no immediate danger posed to the family members of the Prime Minister,”  quoted a police source. 

According to police, both letters contained “detailed murder threats” toward the Bennett family, and whoever sent them had “gathered information” about the family in the most proper way.

The outlet said that the target of the threat was Bennett’s 15-year-old son Yoni, and the post was sent to Bennett’s home in Ra’anana.

Still it is unclear at this point who found the letter because renovation work is ongoing at the Bennett’s residence in Jerusalem. 

On Tuesday, a similar letter addressed to Bennett and to his wife Gilat and security officials immediately reinforced the security unity responsible for maintaining security of the Bennett’s family.  

Shin Bet security agencies have launched an investigation into the incident, according to the Times of Israel.
