Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was released from hospital on Sunday after being admitted the day before for dehydration, and doctors said he was in good health.
Netanyahu, 73, was transferred on Saturday to Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, near his private residence on the Caesarea coast, and was kept under observation overnight.
His motorized convoy was seen leaving Sheba when Israeli media quoted his office as saying he had been discharged.
In a video statement on Saturday, Netanyahu, smiling and wearing a blazer, said he had vacationed on the Sea of Galilee without adequate protection from a heat wave.
Sheba on Sunday confirmed his original diagnosis of dehydration and said additional tests involving a subcutaneous Holter monitor had found Netanyahu to be “in complete cardiac health.”
Israel’s weekly cabinet meeting, which is usually held on Sunday, has been postponed to Monday, his office said.
