A man who posted death threats against on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Facebook page was released from custody on Monday.

The suspect, 32, was arrested in recent days by security forces after writing that Netanyahu "will be in a grave next to Rabin... soon... you like Arabs more than Jews." He later claimed the message was a prank.

The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court released the man on bail with police agreement, and on the condition that he does not post any further incitement to violence on the internet.

The man's attorney, Zakaria Shneklovski, claimed he did not belong to any radical far-right movement.
