erusalem – The United States And Israel have denied reports that a harsh phone call occurred between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday discussing the situation in Gaza.
In the purported call transcript published by Israel’s Channel 1 News, Obama allegedly asked Netanyahu to halt all military activities in the Gaza Strip.
The White House’s National Security Council has tweeted (https://twitter.com/NSCPress) that the transcript is false.
Netanyahu’s office also said the report was false, using the same statement tweeted by the NSC.
Channel 1 reporter Or Nahari says the transcript is real and was leaked to him by what he calls a “senior American official.”
