Netanyahu should face bribery charges, police say

In a televised address, he said he would “continue to lead Israel responsibly and faithfully”, describing the allegations as “baseless”.

His long-running political career had been solely “for the good of the nation”, he said.

In addition, he accused police of conducting a witch hunt against him, and said he would run for re-election.

Mr Netahyahu, who has been questioned several times since the start of 2017, is a suspect in two separate cases.

In one of them, he is alleged to have received $100,000 in gifts from Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan and other wealthy supporters.

In the other case, he is accused of offering preferential treatment to a newspaper publisher in exchange for favourable coverage.

He denies any wrongdoing.

A decision on whether to press charges will be taken by Israel’s attorney general.
