Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at the media, accusing it of working against him by playing up corruption investigations against him.
“The ‘fake news’ industry has reached a record level. The aim is to secure indictments, at whatever price and quickly, against me,” he said to his supporters on Wednesday.
Israeli authorities have questioned Netanyahu in two separate corruption cases.
Police have questioned Netanyahu over allegations he improperly accepted lavish gifts from wealthy supporters, including Australian billionaire James Packer and Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan.
Also being probed are allegations that the prime minister sought a secret deal with the publisher of top-selling daily Yediot Aharonot.
Netanyahu, who has been questioned on both cases, has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence.
