During a Likud ceremony celebrating the final night of Hanukkah, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the reports that the police are expected to recommend that he be indicted in two separate corruption cases.

Netanyahu began his speech by mentioning his government's achievements. "The whole word is seeing these accomplishments. The public is seeing them and the left-controlled media too. This is why they know they can't defeat us at the ballots, so they're trying to convince us with false accusations and protests," he said.

"A few months from now, the truth will come out and it will turn out that this was all a carefully-orchestrated witch-hunt," Netanyahu added.

"So they say there will be recommendations of indictment, so what?" he said. "The vast majority of police recommendations lead to nothing. More than 60% of them turn out to be false."
