Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was rushed to hospital, his office said. Netanyahu, 73, was undergoing medical assessments at Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv, according to a brief statement from his office. Israeli media said he had fainted but was taken to the hospital fully conscious from his private residence in coastal Caesarea.
Netanyahu, 73, is Israel's longest serving leader. He has served multiple terms stretching over 15 years in office. His current far-right government, a collection of religious and ultranationalist parties, took office last December.
