Mossad Chief Bought Netanyahu $500 Worth Cigars That He Didn’t Pay Back
By Staff, Agencies
A key witness in one of the graft cases against Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told investigators that the current Mossad intelligence agency chief bought around $500 worth of cigars for the premier while serving as national security adviser, and was never reimbursed.
Mossad director Yossi Cohen and Netanyahu both swiftly rejected the claim after Channel 12 news reported on the testimony given by Hadas Klein to investigators in Case 1000, which deals with lavish gifts to Netanyahu from his billionaire associates.
According to the report, Klein recalled to investigators that Cohen once told her he had bought Netanyahu $500 worth of cigars but that Netanyahu did not pay him back for them.
Klein quoted Cohen as telling her, “He [Netanyahu] did not intend to take his wallet out of his pocket. It was the first and last time that I bought something for him.”
The incident happened when Cohen was serving as head of the Zionist entity’s so-called ‘National Security Council’ in 2013-2015 and before he was picked by Netanyahu to lead the Mossad in December 2015, the network added.
A statement on behalf of Netanyahu in response to the report claimed it is “more delusional and false testimony from Hadas Klein. Yossi Cohen did not give the prime minister any kind of gifts.”
