A campaign to cover the legal costs of opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu raises NIS 1 million ($321,000) within three hours.

Netanyahu, who is accused of corruption in three cases, including bribery in one of them, has accused law enforcement of instigating a politically motivated “coup” along with the left, the media, police and others. He enjoys widespread support in the right wing.

Pro-Netanyahu pundit Yinon Magal opened the fundraiser as reports have proliferated about talks on a plea deal Netanyahu is negotiating with prosecutors.
