Against the backdrop of criticism over the conduct of anti-government protesters outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s home on Jerusalem’s Azza Street last night, the Israel Police issues a statement clarifying that the premier and his family were never in any danger during the demonstration.

The police statement also blasts protesters’ conduct, though, asserting that it went beyond what constitutes freedom of expression.

Channel 12 reports that Netanyahu was at home at the time.
