A 36-year-old woman was detained Thursday after allegedly approaching Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's wife Sara and cursing her.


The incident took place at a Petah Tikva shopping mall where Netanyahu was having lunch before heading to a visit in the north.

The woman was detained by the mall's security guards and later taken in for questioning at the Petah Tikva police station. The circumstances behind the incident are yet unclear.


Later on Thursday, Netanyahu met with 7-year-old Rachel Atias who lost her family of eight in a tragic car accident less than two weeks ago.
