Man suspected of threatening Lapid: ‘I want to murder you with a sniper rifle’
Police launch investigation into resident of northern Israel over social media post against the premier

Police have opened an investigation into a resident of northern Israel for a suspected death threat against Prime Minister Yair Lapid. “I want to murder you today with a sniper rifle,” the suspect wrote in response to a social media post by Lapid, according to the Ynet news site. The probe is being led by the Israel Police Lahav 433’s cyber unit.

In March 2021, police arrested a man for making threats online to kill Lapid — who was then opposition leader — ahead of elections that year. The latest reported threat came a week after the Walla news site said the premier’s wife, Lihi Lapid, received messages wishing that her family would suffer violent death or terminal cancer.
