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.
