US officials revealed on Wednesday that the White House has been spying on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials, despite promises to stop spying on countries with which they have friendly relations.

According to the Wall Street Journal report, Netanyahu was at the top of the list of officials, especially as the Iran nuclear deal was underway.

The National Security Agency's surveillance allegedly eavesdropped on Netanyahu as he spoke with his aides regarding the Iran deal, as well as private conversations with US officials and American leaders in the Jewish community.
