Political leaders in Israel have reacted angrily to the decision.
Netanyahu's rival for the premiership, Benny Gantz, vowed that his Blue and White party would do everything it could to prevent immunity.
"I never imagined that we would see the day that the prime minister of Israel would avoid standing before the law and the justice system," he said.
Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu, announced on Wednesday that his party would vote against the immunity request.
The Knesset Speaker, Yuli Edelstein, who is a member of Netanyahu's Likud party, said he would hold talks on the matter next week.
