Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein ordered bodyguards to be provided to Bayit Yehudi faction head Ayelet Shaked on Monday after she received threats on her life.

Edelstein told Army Radio that he was particularly disturbed by pictures circulated online of her in an SS uniform, similar to an infamous picture of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin before his assassination.

"We were shocked to see clear threats to MK Shaked," Edelstein said. "We are obligated to protect our MKs from harm."

Shaked is expected to be sworn in as justice minister by next Monday.
