Israeli PM Says Couple Arrested in Turkey Are Innocent Citizens
The Israeli couple arrested in Turkey on espionage charges are innocent citizens, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said at a cabinet meeting on Sunday.
“These are two innocent citizens who have, by mistake, found themselves in a complex situation,” Bennett said, according to a statement released by his office. He added that the government is doing all it can to find a solution to the issue.
Bennett released a statement Saturday night saying that the couple doesn’t work for any Israeli agency.
