Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz says he fears incitement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against the justice system poses a threat to the life of the attorney general.

“I am glad that [Attorney General Avichai] Mandelblit has security but am worried that he doesn’t have enough security guards. We see how it ended in Washington. I think there is a threat to Mandelblit’s life” because of uncontrolled “incitement,” Gantz tells Channel 12 in an interview.

“I think the attorney general could be harmed, even if the prime minister doesn’t want it to happen. He has no ability to control what will happen.”

“The prime minister is fueling [incitement] against the justice system,” he adds.
