Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was taken to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan on Saturday after feeling unwell.

The 73-year-old briefly lost consciousness and subsequently smacked his head on the floor before being rushed to the emergency room.

“His condition is good, and he is undergoing medical tests,” according to a statement from his office.

It added that additional details would be provided shortly.

Netanyahu had been at his private home in Caesarea.

His personal physician, Dr. Zvi Berkowitz, arrived at Sheba Medical Center to tend to the premier.

The doctor described the prime minister’s condition as “good and stable.”

In October, Netanyahu spent a night at the hospital under medical observation due to chest pains that began while he was attending Yom Kippur synagogue services.
