Before his phone call with Justice Minister Yair Levin, Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to Channel 12 news.

The network says Bar presented Netanyahu with the Shin Bet’s assessment that “the atmosphere is heating up,” and told the premier he intended to speak with Levin.

The Kan public broadcaster reports that Bar also spoke recently with President Isaac Herzog as part of his efforts to tamp down the simmering divisions over the government’s plans to weaken the judiciary.
