A top government minister on Saturday angrily rejected claims of Israeli spying on the United States for the second time in a week after the American newsmagazine Newsweek once again quoted unnamed US intelligence officials as decrying what they believe to be overly aggressive espionage on the part of the Jewish state.

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz, who also holds the intelligence portfolio in the Netanyahu government, accused “someone of trying to maliciously and intentionally harm relations between Israel and the United States.”
