Police have stepped up security around Netanya Mayor Miriam Feierberg this week after she received a letter containing two bullets and demanding that she withdraw her support for a construction project in the city.

“If you don’t stop construction, these bullets will kill you,” the letter warned.

Feierberg filed a complaint with the police and released a statement Wednesday saying that she would continue to work as normal, adding that she had faith in the police’s ability to ensure her security.

Police have tasked the Central Unit’s Central District with investigating the death threat, and placed Feierberg under the watch of a special police unit which secures public officials who have been threatened.

Feierberg has led public campaigns against organized crime in recent years and called for municipal regulations to be enforced without exception.

In 2006, a grenade was tossed outside her home.
