Likud Minister Gamliel: I oppose protests outside homes of public officials

With multiple MKs being targeted by activists aiming to pressure them against backing an emerging coalition deal that would bring in a new government and oust long-serving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Likud’s Environment Protection Minister Gila Gamliel reportedly says she opposes protests outside of lawmakers’ homes.

“I oppose demonstrations near the houses of public figures. Families should not be part of the political struggle,” she tells the Likud faction meeting at the Knesset, according to Maariv.

Supporters of the potential incoming government have faced intense protests and threats over the past week. A Knesset vote on the coalition is slated to be held on June 9 or June 14.
