Benjamin Netanyahu hospitalized amid heat wave
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was hospitalized on Saturday with initial tests indicating he was suffering from dehydration.
Netanyahu, 73, received a medical evaluation at Sheba Hospital, near the coastal city of Tel Aviv, after spending Friday at the Sea of Galilee, Israel's largest freshwater lake. His office said today that Netanyahu, who is Israel's longest-serving leader, is in “good condition,” and doctors had ordered further tests.
Israeli opposition leader Yair Lapid and former colleague of Netanyahu wished him a full “recovery and good health” on Twitter. "Feel better," Lapid said.
