The Quick Facts

  • On the evening of Thursday, November 21, the Israeli Attorney General announced that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces corruption charges of bribery, fraud, and breach. Netanyahu has dismissed these charges as a "witch-hunt" and "coup attempt."
  • With 13 years in office, Netanyahu is Israel's longest-serving PM. This is the first time in Israeli history that a sitting PM has been indicted on corruption charges.
  • Currently, Israel is in the midst of a 21-day period where any member of Knesset, the legislative branch of the Israeli government, can become a PM with support from a majority of lawmakers.
