Netanyahu Didn’t Ask Me to Specifically Tap Phones of ex-Mossad and IDF Heads, ex-Shin Bet Chief Says

The Prime Minister’s Office told Uvda: “The claim that the prime minister asked the head of the Shin Bet to listen in on the chief of staff and the head of the Mossad is completely unfounded.

He added: „Wiretapping is the greatest possible [sign of] lack of trust. I never asked to wiretap any of my employees in the Mossad. Never. It never even crossed my mind. In my view, that’s outside the rules of the game.”
