The leader of the Israeli opposition, former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his family will leave the official residence of the Prime Minister of the country no later than July 10, Netanyahu and new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said.

Netanyahu, who served as prime minister for 12 years, has not yet left the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem, AFP reported.

The Balfour Rue residence was the scene of weekly protests last year urging Netanyahu to step down during his corruption trial.  Netanyahu refused to step down and denied any wrongdoing.

In a joint statement, the Bennett and Netanyahu offices said they had agreed that the Netanyahu family would leave the residence no later than July 10th.
