Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was released from the hospital Sunday, after having a heart monitoring device implanted.
A hospital statement said all of the prime minister’s medical test results were normal, including the tests on his heart. The monitoring device was installed, the hospital said, to allow Netanyahu’s medical team “to continue regular monitoring.”
The 73-year-old politician was admitted to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan on Saturday for apparent dehydration.
Later Saturday, the prime minister issued a video statement from the hospital, saying, “I feel really well.”
He urged people to “spend less time in the sun” and “drink more water.”
Netanyahu was on a vacation at the Sea of Galilee where the temperature reached 38 Celsius or 100.4 Fahrenheit.
The prime minister was reported to have experienced dizziness after several hours in the sun.
Israel’s weekly Sunday cabinet meeting has been rescheduled for Monday.
