Mandelblit to announce Netanyahu graft indictments tomorrow — report

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is expected to announce criminal indictments against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tomorrow, according to a Channel 10 news report.

The report comes minutes after Netanyahu’s main challenger Benny Gantz announced he failed to form a governing coalition by a Wednesday deadline.

The announcement provides a new lifeline for the embattled Netanyahu, who is desperate to remain in the prime minister’s post, which he could use to fight the charges and push for immunity. With the exception of the prime minister, Israeli law requires all politicians to resign if charged with a crime.
