Woman set to be charged with threatening Bennett

Police say they intend to charge right-wing political activist Ilana Sporta Hania for sending threatening letters containing bullets to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his family.

Hania, 65, of Ashkelon, was arrested last week on suspicion that she sent two letters containing bullets to Bennett and his wife, as well as his teenage son, threatening their safety if the prime minister did not resign.

Police say in a statement that since her arrest on May 9, “suspicions have strengthened that she carried out blackmail and owned and carried arms.”

A report on evidence against Hania and on plans to indict her was filed with the court Wednesday, police said.
