Otzma Yehudit chairman MK Itamar Ben Gvir on Sunday wrote a letter to Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, in which he called on the Attorney General to investigate Joint List chairman MK Ayman Odeh over his support of terrorism and incitement. The letter followed a Facebook post by Odeh in which he wrote, "If six prisoners managed to break through the narrow and crowded prison, then millions of the Palestinian people can stop the occupation - so that the people will be freed and the prisoners will be released."

In his letter to Mandelblit, Ben Gvir wrote, "Odeh's remarks, which support terrorism and incitement, are not uttered in a vacuum. Members of his party went out one after another to support the criminal actions of the escaped terrorists." As examples, he cited MK Ofer Cassif who wrote, "The prisoners of occupation are political prisoners who are judged and imprisoned in a discriminatory and abusive manner only because of their national identity and their goal to free themselves of the occupation. We will always support their goal and the goal of their people for national liberation from the occupation. We will always oppose harming the innocent.”
