Litzman: Check if Kaniuk, Zehavi Committed Offence

Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman asked the Attorney General on Wednesday to investigate if the sayings by journalist Natan Zehavi and author Yoram Kaniuk, who attacked him during the protest rally at Ichilov Hospital, constitute a criminal offense.

Kaniuk wished during the rally that “the name of the government be erased,” while Zehavi told Voice of Israel Radio during the rally that the tongues of Litzman and his supervising minister should be cut off.
