For the second time in less than a week, a threatening letter with a bullet has been sent to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s family, Channel 12 reports.

The letter is believed to have been sent by someone known to the family, the network says, though it was not necessarily sent by the same suspect who mailed the first letter. The individual spent time gathering information on the Bennetts, according to Channel 12.

The report says the letter uncovered at the premier’s home in Ra’anana was addressed to Bennett’s son Yoni. The first letter was addressed to both him and Bennett’s wife Gilat, Ynet says. Police and the Shin Bet security service have opened an investigation into the matter.

Security officials tell the network that they do not believe there is a substantial threat to the prime minister or his family.
