Ben Gvir accuses Shin Bet of failing to protect Netanyahu

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir takes a shot at Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar, accusing his organization of ignoring threats to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after police struggled to deploy crowd control measures at an anti-government rally outside Netanyahu’s home.

Ben Gvir claims on X that he approached Bar last week about what he says is neglect for security around Netanyahu, but “was answered with a refusal.”

“I demand that the Shin Bet wake up and immediately take the protection of the prime minister and his family seriously,” Ben Gvir writes. “A situation in which thousands of people break through barriers near the prime minister’s home and the Shin Bet turns a blind eye is unacceptable.”
