Yisrael Beytenu reports receiving threats to murder Liberman, party workers

The Yisrael Beytenu party, which is part of the “change bloc” of anti-Netanyahu parties, says it has received a number of threatening calls in the past few hours as negotiations to form a government that will replace Israel’s premier appear to near the finish line.

Yisrael Beytenu says some of these calls included “harsh threats of murder” toward staff at the right-wing secularist party’s headquarters and against its leader, Avigdor Liberman.

It adds that a complaint has been filed with the Knesset Guard.
