As required by law, the Prime Minister's Office publishes Benjamin Netanyahu's latest health report, which states "his health condition is completely normal."

According to the annual health report prepared by Prime Minister Netanyahu's medical team, it was noted that he is under strict and routine medical surveillance, and there are no unusual findings that have come up in the past year.

As a reminder, last July Netanyahu was hospitalized at Sheba Hospital in Tel HaShomer after he felt ill, as a result of which a device was implanted in his body to diagnose heart rhythm disorders.

At the time, the doctors in the cardiology department implanted a subcutaneous Holter device in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's body, designed for the purpose of diagnosing and identifying cardiac arrhythmias. He was released from the hospital after about 20 hours of hospitalization.

The latest report states "since then there is no evidence of pacemaker disturbances or other events. There is no prohibition to perform any activity, including physical or other activity."
