Israeli TV airs audio of Netanyahu’s son outside strip club

JERUSALEM

JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli news station has aired an audio recording of what it says is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son drunkenly bragging outside a strip club in 2015.

In the recording broadcast by Channel 2 News on Monday, Yair Netanyahu tells the son of an Israeli gas tycoon that the prime minister advanced a controversial gas deal in parliament that benefited his father.

Yair and his friends are also heard talking about strippers and how much money they spent.

Yair has drawn media criticism for living a life of privilege at the taxpayers’ expense and for crude social media posts.

The audio was released amid an ongoing police investigation into corruption allegations surrounding the Israeli leader. Netanyahu’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
