Where is Yair Netanyahu now? Here’s what to know

Yair Netanyahu is the son of Israeli politician and current Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara Netanyahu. Since the war between the terrorist group, Hamas, and the State of Israel begun in early October last year, the PM’s son has not been seen in public. However, this begs the question: where is Yair Netanyahu? In this article, we discussed the whereabouts of the 32-year-old Yair.

Firstly, Who is Yair Netanyahu?

Yair is a podcaster and political activist. He created The Yair Netanyahu Show, a far right podcast show, in November 2020. He uses this platform to propagate his far right views to hundreds of thousands of Israelis both home and abroad.

Born on July 26, 1991, in Jerusalem, Yair became interested in politics and started sharing his political views on social media platforms such as Facebook, which at a point in time blocked his account for making anti-Muslim posts.

He attended the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in International Relations. He also has a master’s degree in Government Studies from the Interdisciplinary Center, a private research university in Herzliya.

The podcaster is also a controversial figure in Israeli politics as there are a number of controversies around his name, with one of them being his relationship with a non-Jews in 2014.

Yair has a brother, Avner, and a half-sister, Noa Netanyahu-Roth, who the Israeli Prime Minister shares with his first wife, Miriam Weizmann.

So, where is Yair Netanyahu now?

Yair currently lives in the United States, a country that has been supportive of Israel’s war against Hamas and other terror organizations in the Middle East. According to sources, Yair lives in an expensive apartment in a Florida high rise building. The apartment reportedly costs US$5,000 per month, prompting many to question his net worth.

Sources also revealed that he is being protected by operatives of Shin Bet, in his expensive apartment.

Yair has been living in the apartment since March last year, seven months before Hamas’ October 7 massacre in Southern Israel.

Why people are concerned about Yair Netanyahu’s location

Since the war against Hamas broke out, tens of thousands of Israelis worldwide returned home to join their country’s military in the war. Their presence in the fight gives the military a boost in one way or the other.

Unfortunately, Yair, whom many believe is supposed to set a good example as the adult child of the Prime Minister of a country at war, by defending his country, is nowhere to be found. His absence has not gone unnoticed, sparking interest in knowing his whereabouts.

However, he continues to be vocal against critics of the war which has so far claimed the lives of some 28,000 Palestinians. He also condemned the government of the Republic of South Africa when they filed a case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), accusing Israel of committing genocide in the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, Israel denied and continues to deny that it is committing a genocide in Gaza.
