Netanyahu says Iran has 'sensitive information' on rival, Tehran denies hack

Flash90Former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tuesday that if the Blue and White list led by former IDF chief Benny Gantz forms the next Israeli government, the result will be the eviction of Israelis living in Judea and Samaria. Blue and White officials said at the time that they would not rule out a coalition with Likud, but not if Netanyahu remained party leader. However, reports indicate the information stolen by the Iranians did contain "compromising" data that could be used against him in the future.

However, he added, these potentials capabilities are merely aimed at meeting domestic needs, promoting the country's scientific position in the world and removing technological dependence to others.

But Tehran vehemently denied that early Wednesday, with Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Qasemi telling reporters that Israel was "fabricating various kinds of irrelevant claims to create a hostile atmosphere against Iran", according to the official news agency IRNA.

Netanyahu is locked in a close battle with the centrist Blue and White political alliance while under threat of indictment for corruption in separate cases.

In addition to scattering lies, Qassemi said that Israel and the United States are trying to "unprofessionally attribute any incident in the world to Iran by taking advantage of advertising tools". "This is a matter of national security".

But in a recording broadcast Monday evening by Channel 13, Gantz appeared to walk back that declaration - at least in a scenario where he, and not Netanyahu, becomes prime minister. I have wonderful children.

Netanyahu's office has said that the premier was not updated by the head of the Shin Bet on the affair.
