JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out directly to voters on social media on Tuesday, with broadcast and traditional media outlets off-limits for campaigning on election day.

The media-savvy right-wing leader posted a link on Twitter and Facebook with a video message in Hebrew saying: “Good morning. This morning I am asking to speak with you, personally, through messenger. All it takes is one click on the link. I’m waiting.”
