Ayala Ben Gvir, the wife of Otzma Yehudit leader Itamar Ben Gvir, defends herself after being photographed carrying a gun at a meeting with Sara Netanyahu.

“I Live in Hebron, a mother of six sweet children and travel through terror-infested roads, and am married to the most threatened man in the country, so yes, I have a gun. Deal with it,” she tweets.

Questions were raised after she posed for a picture with the other wives of the leaders of the political parties negotiating to enter a government, with a pistol clearly visible, tucked into her skirt, with many wondering how security officials had allowed her into the presence of Sara Netanyahu with a firearm.
