Ben Gvir disturbed by ‘hatred and death wishes’ against him after running red light

Far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir’s office releases an update on the lawmaker’s health after his car accident on Friday and says the minister was disturbed by so-called “hatred and death wishes” voiced over news media and social media after the crash.

Video from the scene showed his car running a red light, which the statement does not mention.

“In studios and among the people on the extreme left there were probably quite a few people who would have celebrated if God forbid the result had been worse,” the statement reads.

The statement says Ben Gvir is recovering and will return from Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center tonight “to take care of the national security of all of Israel.”
