Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahana condemns a series of death threats made recently against far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir.

“I take the threats to the life of MK Itamar Ben Gvir very seriously. There is no room for violence in the public discourse. I hope that the security forces will soon nab these criminals,” Kahana tweets.

Earlier today, Ben Gvir published screenshots of a couple of the death threats he’s received on Facebook messenger.

“I’ve given you a bullet in the head,” reads one message.

“We will kill you and your family,” reads another, warning Ben Gvir that his actions regarding al-Aqsa will come at a price.
