New York: Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu answered the call of nature accompanied by 20 guards at New York’s Sherry-Netherland Hotel.
Netanyahu was out for dinner with his wife, Sara, at the Harry Cipriani restaurant followed by over-40-strong team of buff agents from the elite Israel Security Agency, known as Shin Bet.
The spy said.“A security detail of 20 came an hour before Bibi arrived, then he turned up with around 20 more agents just after 9 p.m., in a restaurant that seats just over 100 people. Other agents were discreetly placed around the restaurant. They had a large security device in a black box.”
A bystander reported. “around 20 security guards got up with Bibi and a few went into the bathroom with him. One watched the door, and the rest lined up with their arms up to form a human barricade, so nobody could enter the bathroom or even get close.”
A source said.“In order to get to the restaurant, you had to walk around the block to a barricaded area, which was manned by security and attack dogs.”
“Guests were patted down and had to go through metal detectors,” the source added.
“One watched the door, and the rest lined up with their arms up to form a human barricade, so nobody could enter the bathroom or even get close.” Having taken up half of the space in the restaurant and the toilets.
