What were Bibi's aides doing in Jerusalem Wednesday night? Officials close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that the PM's aides were convened for an urgent meeting at his home.
According to the reports, the session was slated to be held at Netanyahu's home to discuss the PR crisis over recent reports of Sara Netanyahu's uncalled for involvement in affairs at the PM's Office.
Around 9 pm, Netanyahu's two senior media advisors, Nir Hefetz and Gidi Shmerling, arrived at the Prime Minister's Office dressed casually. Later, Netanyahu's office issued a statement claiming that the prime minister did not convene an emergency meeting, but rather, stayed at home the whole evening.

However, later on, various sources close to the prime minister provided different explanations about what materialized Wednesday night. According to one version, a meeting was indeed convened at the PM's home, but the advisors were then told the session was called off; nonetheless, they arrived at Prime Minister's Office, as they were already in Jerusalem.
According to another version, no urgent session was convened to begin with, and the advisors arrived at the PM's Office to handle an affair that could not be put off. Given the conflicting reports throughout the evening, the actual events that materialized in Jerusalem Wednesday night remain shrouded in mystery.
