Israeli police arrested a 65-year-old woman on Monday for sending death threats last month to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his family.

They received two death threats in the mail, along with bullets.

Bennett and his Yamina Party have come under intense scrutiny by the right-wing, being accused of selling out and joining left-wing and Arab parties.

The police only said that the suspect was from southern Israel; other details in the case remain under a court gag order.

In April, the Magen Unit responsible for protecting Bennett’s security stepped up security after one of the death threat letters was received.
