Embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has used a video posted online Wednesday to accuse police of pressuring witnesses to "smear" him as corruption investigations against him intensify.

In his first direct reaction since the announcement that his ex-aide Nir Hefetz would testify against him, Netanyahu said the "manufacture of witnesses" aims to "smear me, even at the price of lies".

Israeli media reported Monday that Hefetz, a former spokesman for the Netanyahu family, had signed a state witness deal in a graft probe linked to himself and his former boss.

Heather Locklear's Friends Hopeful She'll Seek 'Help,' Says Source: 'It's Just Heartbreaking'

  Heather Locklear's Friends Hopeful She'll Seek 'Help,' Says Source: 'It's Just Heartbreaking' Heather Locklear’s closest friends are hoping her recent arrest will help her get her life on track. The actress, 56, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of felony domestic battery as well as three counts of battery on a police officer after police received a domestic violence call around 9:40 p.m. in Thousand Oaks, California. Locklear has struggled with depression, anxiety and substance abuse for years, with a source telling PEOPLE of the latter, “It’s a disease.” “She has to be ready to fix it herself,” says the insider. “She knows help is available, she’s sought it out before, but you can’t force anybody to get help.” Adding, “It’s heartbreaking.” Representatives for Locklear have no comment at this time on the star’s arrest. Police went to the star’s home after receiving a 911 call – which was obtained by TMZ – that was placed by Locklear’s brother after he allegedly saw his sister and her boyfriend fighting. While police were unable to tell PEOPLE if alcohol was involved in this latest incident, Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said she was “extremely uncooperative right off the bat” adding that she “became combative with deputies.” Her boyfriend Chris Heisser was arrested for DUI just hours after she was taken into custody. A public information officer said his blood alcohol level was .19. It is not clear if Heisser has a lawyer representing him at this time.

In exchange, he would not be tried, go to prison or be fined, according to Israeli media, which have reported the deal may be a turning point in probes into Netanyahu.

The premier, in power for almost 12 years, slammed the use of state witnesses in the video published Wednesday on his Facebook page.

"When there is something, there is no need for this kind of witness," he said. "When there is nothing, even 1,000 state witnesses will not help."

"They will continue what they do and I will continue my historic action for the sake of the State of Israel," he added.

Israeli media reports say Hefetz is alleged to have acted as a messenger between Netanyahu, telecoms group Bezeq and a news website it owns.

Police suspect Bezeq was given regulatory breaks in return for Netanyahu receiving positive coverage on the Walla! news site.

Shlomo Filber, once one of the prime minister's closest confidants, has also agreed to testify in the case, while Ari Harow, a former chief of staff for the premier, signed a state witness deal in a separate case.

Netanyahu has been questioned eight times in relation to at least six ongoing cases.

Although he has not been formally charged, the police on February 13 recommended he be indicted in two of the cases.

The successive blows have called into question the future of the premier, the head of a coalition that is seen as the most right-wing government in Israel's history.

Even if charged, Netanyahu would not be legally required to resign.

Heather Locklear Banned from Owning a Firearm After Being Charged with Battery on Police Officer .
Heather Locklear has been banned from owning a firearm, Ventura County District Attorney Tom Dunlevy confirms to PEOPLE. While the Melrose Place star will no longer face charges for allegedly hitting her boyfriend in late February, she is still facing four counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer and one charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer. Locklear’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Locklear, 56, was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic battery for allegedly assaulting boyfriend, Chris Heisser, at her Thousand Oaks, California, home Feb. 25. Last week, Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies searched Locklear’s home for a firearm registered in her name, Capt. Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department told PEOPLE. The actress was not home when officers conducted their search. Kuredjian said the search was prompted by Locklear’s alleged threats against Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies who arrived at her home in late February after they received a domestic violence call around 9:40 p.m. Locklear allegedly verbally threatened deputies, saying she would “shoot them if they ever came to her house again,” according to the Thousand Oaks Police Department. Last week, PEOPLE confirmed that the 56-year-old actress is seeking help for her battle with addiction. “Heather is in treatment for addiction,” a friend told PEOPLE. “Everyone hopes she gets well, that she gets better.
