Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s coalition partners denounce a threatening letter and bullet that was sent to the premier’s family.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid says the letter shows “where hatred can lead.”

“We’ll continue to fight the discourse of hate in the street, on social media, everywhere. They won’t intimate us. The extremists won’t defeat the sane majority,” he writes on Twitter.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz denounces the threats against Bennett’s family as “the crossing of a red line.”

“A bullet in an envelope can turn into three bullets fired from a pistol,” he says.
