An Israeli man made an apparent death threat against the family of Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend, prompting the Likud party to file a criminal complaint.

On Saturday, Yariv Perelmutter took to Twitter to call for a “final solution” to the Netanyahu family, calling the incoming premier and his relatives “filth.”

“It seems that even the filth that is Netanyahu finally understood how much of a filth he is. Only a final solution for this man, for him, his crazy wife and his sons – a final solution.”

On Sunday, the Likud party announced that it had filed a complaint with police over Perelmutter’s tweet, calling it “dangerous incitement” and urging the state prosecutor, police department, and the Shin Bet internal security agency to take action.
