Israeli authorities detained a suspect in connection with threatening graffiti scrawled outside Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s residence in Modiin.

The graffiti called Levin “the enemy of the people.” Levin is a top Likud official and one of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s closest ministers in the coalition.

Police in Modiin said the suspect was a local man in his 60s.
