The midnight deadline that ex-premier Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to leave the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem by is approaching.

There have been conflicting reports on whether Netanyahu and his family spent Shabbat at the residence on Jerusalem’s Balfour Street, where they have lived for the past 12 years.

According to the Ynet news site, another moving truck is due to arrive in the morning to take out more of the family’s possessions.

Netanyahu had reached the agreement to move out by tonight with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, whose family will stay at home in Ra’anana while he is expected to sleep in the official residence for meetings.
