Sara Netanyahu: Hair salon standoff could have ended in murder

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife rails at protesters who demonstrated outside a Tel Aviv salon where she was getting her hair cut yesterday, with police called to the scene for several hours until she was extricated.

The incident came on a day of mass protests across the country against the government and its plans to curb the judiciary.

“The terrible incident that occurred yesterday could have ended in murder. The time has come to stop the anarchy,” she says on Instagram, echoing her husband’s statements about the protests.

“The time has come for opposition leaders to denounce the violence, anarchy and incitement,” Sara Netanyahu adds.

She also thanked security forces, specifically naming far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai, for their “personal concern.”

Some protesters have contested the assertion that Netanyahu was ever in danger. Videos from the scene appeared to show protesters keeping their distance from the salon.
