Netanyahu trial resumes after break, without PM in room

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Netanyahu’s trial continues after a short break and after the prime minister has left the courtroom.

Ilan Yeshua, the former CEO of the Walla news outlet, takes the stand in order to provide testimony in the corruption trial.

Yeshua is expected to describe the ways the premier and the owners of the Walla-controlling Bezeq telecommunications firm, Shaul and Iris Elovitch, pressured the news outlet to give Netanyahu positive coverage.
