Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu was released from Shaare Zedek Medical Center on Thursday, after fainting during Ne’ilah.

He was released after all the results of the tests he underwent proved to be completely normal, according to a statement from Netanyahu’s office.

“Netanyahu is back to full activity and is already on his way to his morning walk,” the statement continued.

Netanyahu thanked all the dedicated medical staff at the medical center for their work. Israeli media quoted Netanyahu’s personal doctor as saying he looked “excellent, not even pale.”

“The former Prime Minister began to feel ill in the beit knesset during tefillot,” his office said in a statement on Wednesday. “He underwent a series of on-site tests that came back normal, and he is now feeling better. In order to be certain, Netanyahu went to the hospital independently.”

His doctor had issued a reassuring statement that evening, stating that Netanyahu was feeling well but would spend the night in the hospital for further observation.
