Police question Netanyahus under caution in graft case

It emerged this morning that Nir Hefetz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's former media adviser, who was very close to the prime minister and his wife Sara Netanyahu, is negotiating a state's witness agreement with the State Prosecutor's Office.

Trump's push to change or scrap Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and concerns over Tehran's foothold in Syria topped the agenda of his talks with Netanyahu, U.S. and Israeli officials said.

Despite fierce worldwide opposition, Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December and announced the U.S. embassy would move to the city in May, shortly after Israel's 70th anniversary.

A former aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a top businessman were released and put under house arrest on Sunday after 14 days in custody over suspicions of fraud involving the premier, police said. "We have, I would say, probably the best relationships right now with Israel that we ever had".

The new embassy will initially be located in a U.S. consular building in Jerusalem al-Quds while Washington searches for "a permanent location". He has accused Iran of planning to build precision-guided missile factories in Lebanon, amid tensions along that border.

Any hopes for a new peace process have dwindled since Trump's recognition of Jerusalem angered the Palestinians. Amid reports of deepening White House chaos, Trump is facing an intensifying investigation over his election campaign's alleged collusion with Russian Federation.

The retailer would target "young consumers" and people without access to traditional checking accounts, the report says. Walmart attempted the bank route 20 years ago, but the industry got then-Fed chief Alan Greenspan to shoot that down.

Long-time Netanyahu family spokesman Nir Hefetz agreed on Monday to speak in return for a more lenient punishment, multiple reports said.

"We're looking at coming".

"He believes the Netanyahu era is over", the sources said, and is also "testifying for the good of the nation". This is years and years of opposition and frankly hatred and a lot of things", said Trump "I will tell you that if we could do peace between Israel and the Palestinians, that would be a great thing for the world. Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing. Multiple aides and people close to Kushner have insisted the downgrade to a "secret" clearance won't affect his ability to work on Middle East issues. I will also discuss with the President the advancement of peace.

Netanyahu's visit while in Washington to the annual conference of the influential lobby group the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), will provide a boost for the right-wing Israeli leader as scandals and political turmoil brew at home.

U.S. officials have told Reuters it would deal with all major issues, including Jerusalem, borders, security and the future of Israeli settlements and Palestinian refugees, and would also urge Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states to provide significant financial support to the Palestinians. In the so-called "case 4000", he is suspected of being part of a bribery deal, in which Israel's largest telecom company, Bezeq, received regulatory and financial benefits from the Communication Ministry, which Netanyahu headed between 2014 and 2017, in addition to his capacity as prime minister.
