Document Confirms Details of Police Investigations of Netanyahu
A court document inadvertently leaked to the press this week shows that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is under investigation by police on suspicion of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. The uncovering of these specific charges add little to what was already publicly known about three investigations which have been ongoing for some time. “The witch-hunt to topple the government is in full swing but it will fail because of this simple reason: There will be nothing because there was nothing,” said a statement by Netanyahu’s office.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu was in the West Bank settlement community of Betar Illit Thursday to inaugurate a new neighborhood. Speaking to city officials and a large crowd of citizens, he declared that the government would soon build a road between the community and Jerusalem, which will cut the commute to around 15 minutes.

 “We’re renewing Jerusalem. We’re renewing Betar. And we are making a connection between them,” he said. “There is no government that does more for the settlement in the Land of Israel, than this government under my leadership. We’re working energetically to settle all parts of the country.”

Shin Bet; Hamas Laundering Money via Turkey
The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) de-classified a report Thursday exposing a money laundering operation used to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Islamist terror militia Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, to terror operatives in the West Bank, using various cutouts and go-betweens in Turkey. The Shin Bet report added that Hamas “frequently mobilizes relatives of the organization’s operatives in the field, or is assisted by merchants and businessmen who pay a significant personal and business price for this activity.”

NGO Warns of Humanitarian Disaster in Yemen
International humanitarian NGO Save the Children published a report this week warning that as many as 1 million children, many of whom are already suffering from a severe famine that has accompanied drought and war in the country, are in danger from a rapidly spreading epidemic of cholera. The outbreak, which began to come to the attention of Western governments in the Spring of 2015, has already infected over a half million people and led to around 2,000 known fatalities.

“The tragedy is both malnutrition and cholera are easily treatable if you have access to basic healthcare,” said Tamer Kirolos, Save the Children’s country director for Yemen. “But hospitals and clinics have been destroyed, government health workers haven’t been paid for almost a year, and the delivery of vital aid is being obstructed.”

The UN estimates that 20.7 million people in Yemen are in urgent need of humanitarian relief out of a population just under 28 million.

Israeli Soccer Team Attacked by Skinheads in Poland
The Polish government condemned an attack on two staff members of the Hapoel Petah Tikva football (soccer) club by a gang of skinheads following a friendly match Thursday evening against a local Polish club in Suchocin, a suburb of Warsaw. The Polish team, MKS Ciechanow, issued its own statement condemning the attack and declaring that neither it nor its fans had had anything to do with it, further asserting that the attackers had been fans of reigning Polish champion Legia Warsaw.
