Soldier Yair Netanyahu joins parents on US trip
PM's Office says family will pay for all of son's flight, lodging expenses

IDF soldier Yair Netanyahu, the son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, joined his parents Sunday night as they flew to the US for an official visit.


The Prime Minister's Office said the soldier's vacation from the army was authorized by his commanding officers.


"The Netanyahu family will pay for Yair's flight and lodging expenses out of its own pocket," the office said in a statement.


Last summer Yair Netanyahu was handed a 10-day detention sentence after he showed up late at the IDF Spokesperson's Office headquarters, where he serves.
