Benjamin (Binyamin) Netanyahu is the prime minister of Israel. Netanyahu was born in Tel Aviv on October 21, 1949, to Tsilah and Benzion, a renowned historian. His older brother, Yonatan (Yoni), was killed in action while commanding the special forces rescue operation of Israeli hostages in Entebbe, Uganda.
Benjamin Netanyahu is married to Sara, with whom he has two sons. He has been married twice before and has a daughter from his first marriage. In 2009, he became a grandfather for the first time.
On February 14, 2018, Israel Police announced that there was sufficient evidence indicating Netanyahu took bribes in two separate cases and acted "against public interests."
