Police say they have detained a man for questioning over graffiti denouncing Justice Minister Yariv Levin that was spray-painted on an outer wall of his home in Modiin.

The graffiti found yesterday called Levin “the enemy of the people.”

Police say the suspect in his 60s, also a resident of Modiin, is being questioned at a local police station over the circumstances of the incident and motive.

Levin, a top Likud party confidante of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is a leading figure in the government’s push to overhaul the judicial system, which has been met with mass protests.
