Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be charged with corruption over his relationship with casino billionaire James Packer and American-Israeli movie producer Arnon Milchan, Israeli police said.

Now deep in a cloud of uncertainty over his political future, the right-wing leader will await a final decision by Israel's attorney-general on whether he will face charges, a process that could take weeks or even months.

The recommendations, which police made public on Tuesday night (Wednesday AEDT), were at the more serious end of the range of charges that had been expected to be levelled against Netanyahu, now in his fourth term. The investigations have gone on for more than a year.

The Israeli attorney general will have to decide whether to indict Mr Netanyahu and what charges he could face. Israeli media reported that Mr Netanyahu was under pressure to step down.

1. There has been rumors about these indictments in the Jewish community for a while

I have heard gossip or stories of possible indictments of Netanyahu at Jewish events for a couple of years now. I talked to some recent immigrants from Israel and they really did not like Netanyahu
