Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly told his son Yair to stop being in direct contact with various government ministers and Likud politicians, following growing criticism of the influence the firebrand younger Netanyahu has on government policies and rhetoric.

Channel 12 news reports that the criticism related to alleged demands by Yair Netanyahu not to halt the judicial overhaul legislation for compromise talks, and not to walk back the firing of Defense Minister Yoav Gallant who had demanded such a halt.

The Netanyahu family comments that the report is an “evil lie.”

Earlier today, the Walla news site said the premier has barred his elder son from posting on social media. The prolific tweeter has gone silent since late last month, and is on a trip to the United States.
