Petah Tikva police arrested a 29-year-old man on Tuesday night after he called for the hanging of Yesh Atid party chairman Yair Lapid and his associates in a post on his Facebook page.

The man's threat included a reference to Purim, which begins on Sunday, saying "at the beginning of the month of Adar we will destroy all of our left-wing enemies, including Yair Lapid and his friends, and we will hang them like we hung Haman and his sons."
