Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said early on Sunday that he was undergoing a procedure to receive a pacemaker.


In a short statement, Netanyahu’s office said Israel’s leader would be placed under sedation. A top deputy, Justice Minister Yariv Levin, was to stand in for him.

The procedure comes one week after Netanyahu was hospitalised for what his office described as dehydration.
