Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on the mend after undergoing emergency heart surgery to have a pacemaker implanted. The procedure was performed at Sheba Medical Centre in Tel HaShomer and went smoothly without any complications, according to the manager of the arrhythmia center. While the Prime Minister’s condition was not life-threatening, doctors decided to act immediately after detecting a temporary arrhythmia. Netanyahu released a video statement saying he feels great but needs to listen to his doctors.

This news may come as a shock to many, as just a week ago Netanyahu was rushed to the hospital after experiencing a dizzy spell from spending a day in extreme heat. Fortunately, test results showed he was in complete cardiac health, and his office confirmed he was feeling very good.

As Israel’s longest-serving leader, Netanyahu has seen his fair share of health scares, but he has always bounced back. At 73 years old, he is generally in good health but was briefly hospitalized last October after feeling unwell during prayers.
It’s crucial for our leaders to prioritize their health so they can continue serving our great nation. We wish Prime Minister Netanyahu a speedy recovery and hope he takes the necessary steps to ensure his well-being moving forward. Any health concerns for our elected officials should always be taken seriously, as their well-being directly impacts the stability and effectiveness of our government.
