Meretz MK: Netanyahu encouraged arson to distract from sub scandal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deliberately encouraged arsonists to ignite fires across the country in an effort to divert the public’s attention from a scandal over German submarines, Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On told The Jerusalem Post Monday.

The scandal over a German company hiring Netanyahu’s personal lawyer and confidant David Shimron ahead of a massive deal to purchase vessels for the Israeli navy dominated headlines in the days ahead of the fires. But once the conflagrations spread, the sub scandal shifted to inside pages of the papers.
