Sarah Netanyahu: Israeli army leaders want to carry out a military coup against my husband

The Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” reported that Wife of Israeli Prime Minister Sarah NetanyahuIt revealed “the Israeli military leadership’s intention to overthrow him,” according to what was reported by Sky News.

The newspaper added that “Sara Netanyahu said in a closed meeting with the families of the hostages that the army leaders wanted to carry out a military coup against her husband.”

A statement issued by Netanyahu’s office categorically rejected the report, and said, “The false leaks circulating about Mrs. Netanyahu are an outrageous injustice.”

He added that the Prime Minister’s wife “is working on her own initiative to capture the hostages, and is helping as much as she can.”

The statement continued: “Despite the voices trying to harm her, Mrs. Netanyahu will continue to work for those who were harmed in the war, and pray for the speedy return of all hostages.”

Netanyahu is facing increasing pressure regarding the hostage issue in particular, amid the state of instability that Israel is witnessing following the start of the war in the Gaza Strip about 8 months ago.

The opposition has been calling for months for early elections in Israel, which are strongly expected to oust Netanyahu if they take place.
