Former Netanyahu spokesman signs witness deal in graft probe
The news comes days after police announced that there was sufficient evidence to indict the Israeli PM for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.
"The myth of invincibility of Israel, of the Israeli military, has crumbled," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told NBC News in an exclusive interview.
The legal action comes two months after Israeli media first reported that Netanyahu was grilled by police investigators for more than three hours.
Police Chief Roni Alsheikh earlier said "powerful figures" had hired people to "sniff around" detectives investigating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
