Authorities were dispatched in the vicinity of the home to search for the perpetrator of the incident. 

After reports of the incident surfaced, Herzog took to Facebook to underline that his wife, Michal, was alright and that the couple was continuing with their daily routine.

"Police are investigating the incident and we are confident that the investigation will be concluded shortly," Herzog said.

Herzog's Zionist Union party suffered a defeat by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud faction in Israel's March 17 election, after campaign polls had predicted a close race.

On Saturday, Herzog refuted reports that he had secretly met with the premier to discuss the possibility of forming a national unity government, insisting that his preference is to remain in the opposition.
