Meanwhile, White House spokesman Josh Raffel said on Monday that US President Donald Trump had not discussed with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Israeli plans to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin said it was "shameful that the key witness against prime minister Netanyahu is politician Yair Lapid, who has for years sought to replace him".

In the first case, dubbed by the police "case 1000", Netanyahu allegedly accepted bribery from an Israeli businessman and Hollywood tycoon Arnon Milchan and an Australian businessman, James Packer.

"I feel a deep obligation to continue to lead Israel in a way that will ensure our future", he said.

Reacting to the Police reports, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu maintained his silence and termed it a politically motivated move.

A native of Tel Aviv, Netanyahu is now the longest-serving prime minister in Israel's history.

A decision to press formal charges against the veteran premier now rests with the attorney general's office, which is expected to take weeks or months to decide how to proceed.

The reported recommendations Tuesday night do not immediately threaten Netanyahu, but they are deeply embarrassing and could fuel calls for him to step aside. But it would certainly cripple his ability to govern in what is already a shaky coalition government of hard-liners and liberals.

Netanyahu, however, has strictly denied any wrongdoing and spoke to the Israeli people about the accusations. Additionally, the police also recommended that Yediot Acharonot publisher Arnon Mozes (involved in file 2000) and Arnon Milchin (File 1000) be tried for charges of fraud and bribery.

"This time things will end without anything", he said.

Milchan and Mozes also will be charged.

On Monday, a panel of three High Court of Justice judges rejected a petition submitted by attorney Yossi Fuchs, asking the court to instruct the police commissioner not to include police recommendations in involving Prime Minister Netanyahu as a suspect.

Regarding the second case Netanyahu again pointed to his previous actions in working against the interests of the person whom the police accuse him of helping. On Tuesday, the prime minister claimed in a live TV broadcast that the recommended charges "mean nothing in a democratic society" and vowed to stay in office. He is also accused, in a separate case, of attempting to weaken the conservative newspaper Israel Hayom in exchange for receiving favorable coverage from its rival.

Netanyahu's lawyers said the presents in the case were simply tokens of friendship.
