Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was discharged from hospital on Sunday after being hospitalized for dehydration the day before, but doctors said he was in good health.
Netanyahu, 73, was taken to Shiva Hospital in Tell Hashomer near his private residence on the coast of Caesarea on Saturday and was kept under observation overnight.
His convoy was seen leaving Sheba after Israeli media reported, citing his office, that he had been discharged.
In a video statement on Saturday, a smiling blazer-wearing Prime Minister Netanyahu said he spent his holiday at the Sea of Galilee without properly protecting himself from the heat wave.
Shiva on Sunday confirmed an initial diagnosis of dehydration and said additional tests, including a subcutaneous Holter test, had found Netanyahu to be “in full heart health.”
Israel’s Sunday cabinet meeting has been postponed until Monday, the prime minister’s office said.
