Man charged with threatening to kill Bennett

Police file an indictment against a 45-year-old Kiryat Gat resident for allegedly threatening to kill Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

According to the charge sheet, Yevgeny Gorov called police last Friday from a public phone and made the repeated threats.

“I am willing to die, but on my terms — I will take Naftali Bennett with me,” he allegedly said.

Questioned by police, he is said to have elaborated and said he knows how to get a gun and that it’s “no problem to reach the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, wait for the prime minister’s convoy when it arrives or departs and then try to harm Naftali Bennett.”

Police have asked the Ashkelon Magistrate’s Court to extend his detention for the duration of legal proceedings in the case.
