National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir sends a letter to Attorney General Gali Baharav Miara requesting that she remove the parliamentary immunity of Hadash-Ta’al MK Ahmad Tibi so that he can be charged with incitement to terror.

In the letter, Ben Gvir cites comments made by Tibi in Arabic earlier this week at a graduation ceremony at the the Arab American University in Jenin.

According to a Hebrew translation of Tibi’s comments, the MK told the university that “our sons and all Palestinians… are opposing and fighting in their own way… they will lead this people to freedom.”
