Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett is undergoing surgery on Monday for a back injury he suffered during his IDF service 30 years ago, resulting in a herniated disc.
Bennett was hospitalized twice in the last two weeks due to pain stemming from the injury. On Sunday, he posted a video on social media, announcing his surgery.
“The doctors recommended this surgery to treat a problem I’ve been suffering from for thirty years, apparently since the time that I carried a little too much weight [on my back] in the special forces,” Bennett said.
