JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lashed out at the “fake news industry” over media coverage of investigations into corruption allegations.

Addressing a rally of his Likud party supporters Wednesday, Netanyahu also criticized the weekly protests held outside the attorney general’s home demanding he be indicted.

Netanyahu struck a similar tone at a rally earlier this month.

Police have questioned Netanyahu over allegations he received gifts from Hollywood and business figures. A separate probe is looking into secret talks with the publisher of a major Israeli newspaper in which Netanyahu allegedly requested positive coverage in exchange for reining in a free pro-Netanyahu daily.

Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing and says the allegations are part of a political witch hunt by hostile media.
