JERUSALEM (VINnews) — MK Betzalel Smotrich, the leader of the Religious Zionism party, caused a scare in Israel when he tweeted Tuesday morning that everyone should stop and say Tehillim due to a life-threatening incident but refused to say what was involved.

Smotrich wrote on Twitter that “there is a dramatic incident of Pikuach Nefesh (life-threatening) which is evolving at this moment and prayers are needed. I can’t give details, please G-d I will give them afterwards. Just say Tehillim to save Jewish souls.”

Smotrich’s unusual message caused consternation and panic in many regions, as people surmised that he was referring to a security issue or to the terrorist who injured a person near Bnei Brak Tuesday morning and is apparently still at large.

Smotrich tried to calm the tensions by stating that he was not referring to a terrorist attack but rather to a “life-threatening event which requires prayers.”

About half and hour later Smotrich informed his followers of the reason for the emergency Tehillim. “In the last few minutes a mother and her son were rescued from an Arab village in Samaria. This was a long and complex operation which became more complicated as it developed but thankfully ended well. The woman and her son were imprisoned and kidnapped in the Arab village and suffered severe abuse. Their lives were in danger as there was a race between the IDF and Palestinian Police who would get to them first.”
