Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the Shin Bet to investigate senior officials in his office on suspicion that they leaked sensitive security information to journalists, reported Army Radio on Thursday.

Several PMO officials have already been investigated and made to take polygraph tests, among them the head of the National Security Council Uzi Arad, Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser, and former PMO spokesman Nir Hefetz.

Based on the investigation, the Shin Bet said that the information leaks were not carried out by any PMO employees.
