Minister of Science Rabbi Professor Daniel Hershkowitz was hospitalized over shabbos after reporting he did not feel well. The minister, whose leadership of the HaBayit HaYehudi party is being challenged, was released on Sunday morning, after doctors ruled out any serious medical issue.
He was admitted to Carmel Hospital in Haifa for observation.
MK Uri Aurbach, a party colleague to Hershkowitz, remains hospitalized for over a week, apparently due to a serious systemic infection. He is receiving intravenous antibiotic therapy. Showing improvement, doctors hope he will be released in the coming days.
