Personal security was attached to MKs Nir Orbach and Idit Silman of the Yamina party, at the order of Knesset Officer Superintendent Yosef Griff.

The Knesset officer made the decision following the escalation of threats against the two, in light of the expected establishment of the Bennett-Lapid government.

It should be noted that Silman turned to the Knesset officer last night and asked for close security, after receiving threats on her life, following the formation of the "change bloc" government.

Over the weekend, Silman sent a recording to a Yamina WhatsApp group while driving and related in real time the sense of threat she was experiencing.

"I don't feel so good, there is a car following me here on the road. I would like to know what you think I can do. They came out from behind my house and are really following me, I think, wherever I go." Silman even decided to stop sending her children to school.

Members of the Yamina faction will meet again this morning, following a meeting they held on Friday. The faction estimates that MK Nir Orbach will not vote against the formation of the Bennett-Lapid government, and will update Naftali Bennett on this today.
