Israeli Police Question Netanyahu In Corruption Case For Second Time

Hebrew media initially reported that Sara was confronted by the two state's witnesses: former media adviser Nir Hefetz and former director of communications ministry Shlomo Filber.

In a video posted on his Facebook page shortly after being investigated on corruption allegations, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated that he is "completely confident" of his innocence.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he hopes to slash flight times between Tel Aviv and India's financial capital Mumbai, days after Air India ran the first scheduled Israel-bound service to cross Saudi airspace.

Multiple Israeli media reports said the long-time leader is to be questioned in relation to a case of alleged corruption involving telecoms giant Bezeq.

This is the ninth time Netanyahu has been questioned in various cases directly or indirectly concerning him.

According to the broadcaster, the police will also interrogate Netanyahu's wife Sara and son Yair at the police department in the city of Lod.

U.S. drags China to WTO on discriminatory technology licensing requirements
The tensions reflect the dueling nationalistic ambitions of Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping . The American pork industry sent $1.1 billion in products, making China the No. 3 market for US pork.

Two Netanyahu confidants were arrested on suspicion of promoting regulation worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Israel's Bezeq telecom company in return for Bezeq's popular news site, Walla, allegedly providing favorable coverage of Netanyahu and his family. His questioning lasted about four hours.

Israeli police investigators have also been grilling Netanyahu for corruption over his involvement in cases 1000 and 2000.

Israel's attorney general is now reviewing the police recommendations, a process that could take months, and will decide whether to indict Netanyahu on the charges.

Netanyahu is suspected of accepting lavish gifts from billionaire friends, and promising to promote legislation to help a major Israeli newspaper against its free rival in exchange for favorable coverage.

The cases have fueled speculation he could be forced to step down or call an early election but Netanyahu has maintained that he is innocent of any wrongdoing and has denounced allegations against him as a media and police witch hunt.
