Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, yesterday warned that there have been Israeli attempts to assassinate him, Arab48 reported.

Salah accused senior Israeli leaders of inciting against him, including extremist settler leaders and acting ministers in the Israeli Government.

Writing on Facebook, Salah said that he was exposed to a series of aggressive acts as “a result of continuous incitement against me and many Palestinians” in Israel.

He noted that an unrecognised car got close to his house, took footage of it then fled. In addition, he said that a settler entered Umm Al-Fahm, where he lives, and started to ask about his house.

A friend of his, Salah said, reported that he heard his Israeli colleagues speaking about killing him or expelling him from his house.

“My blood is in the neck of [Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor] Lieberman, [Minister of Intelligence Yisrael] Katz and [Housing Minister Yoav] Galant and everyone like them,” he wrote, “because their remarks are a preparation for killing me or starting to attempt to kill me.”

On Sunday, Katz said that he has been working to deport Salah to Lebanon or Gaza. Lieberman said that he is currently working on arresting Salah and put him under administrative detention.
