The threatening letter with a bullet inside sent today to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s son Yoni warned that if the premier doesn’t resign, his family will be harmed, Channel 12 reports.

The letter was the second in less than a week. Today’s letter threatened to harm Yoni and Bennett’s wife Gilat if the prime minister does not quit, while the letter sent on Tuesday threatened to harm Yoni.

Channel 12 reports that the letters were likely sent by the same suspect or suspects, while Kan reports that the second letter was sent by a copycat.

Channel 12 says the letters had similar phrasing and the same type of bullet inside.

Today’s letter was intercepted at the post office and did not reach the Bennett home in Ra’anana, the network says, adding that there are not yet any major leads in the case.
