Police say officers have detained and later released a man in his 70s from central Israel for allegedly threatening Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a social media video.

The suspect, from the Sharon region — the coastal plain south of Haifa and north of Tel Aviv — is suspected of recording a video in which he “expresses himself, among other things, towards the PM, in a manner that constitutes a suspicion of the offense of threats,” police say.

After questioning, the man is released to house arrest, police add.
