JERUSALEM (AA) - Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu Tuesday announced that he withdrew his request for parliamentary immunity in three corruption cases.

“A few minutes ago, I announced to the speaker of the Knesset that I was withdrawing the request for immunity and I will disprove the claims made against me,” Netanyahu wrote on his Facebook page.

The Israeli PM has been facing charges which include bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three different cases.

The premier said that he had informed Yulli Edelstein, the Knesset speaker (Israeli parliament), of his decision on Tuesday morning.

Hovewer, he said: “I will not let my political opponents use this matter to interfere with the historical move I am leading.”

Last week, the White House announced that Trump will meet Tuesday with Netanyahu and his election rival Benny Gantz, who heads the centrist Blue and White Party. They will discuss the prospects of his controversial Middle East peace deal, dubbed the "Deal of the Century."

"As I have done all my life, I will continue to invest all for the future of our country and for you, the citizens of Israel," he vowed.

The Knesset is scheduled to vote on Netanyahu's request on Wednesday.
