Man detained for inciting against Netanyahu online: ‘He’ll end under the guillotine’
Suspect from Jerusalem taken in for questioning over social media posts that called to ‘rebel’ against PM and said he’ll soon ‘be in a coffin’
Police on Tuesday detained a Jerusalem man for suspected incitement to violence against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In social media posts the man wrote, “We will rebel against Netanyahu and his government and prepare a guillotine for their supporters.”
In another post he wrote: “Rebel against Netanyahu, who will meet his end under the guillotine.”
In a third post, he called for sending “a cell to kill Netanyahu and [Public Security Minister Itamar] Ben Gvir.”
“Netanyahu, I can promise you that in a few months you’ll be in a coffin,” an additional post said, according to the Ynet news site.
A police statement said the suspect was taken for questioning by the Lahav 433 national crime unit’s cyber division, without naming him.
In March, a suspect was similarly arrested on suspicion of inciting violence against Netanyahu online, as have a number of other suspects in recent years.
