Balad MK Wasal Taha filed a complaint Tuesday morning to State Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz, in which he said that comments made by Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman at the Knesset plenum constituted a threat to his life. "[Lieberman's saying that he] hopes my day will come, and that it's a shame a Hamas terrorist doesn't take care me are unequivocal threats on my life," Taha wrote. "These things are incitement to murder, or at least incitement to do physical harm." Taha asked that steps be taken to open a criminal investigation against Leiberman. The Balad MK also filed a complaint to the Knesset Ethics Committee on the matter.
