Former Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, 80, was rushed to Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center in Tzrifin late Saturday night after he complained of feeling pain, according to Galei Tzahal Army Radio.
Ben-Eliezer, who has been in poor health for years, was held overnight for observation and additional tests, doctors said. They added that he was fully conscious and he is in stable condition.
He underwent a kidney transplant in December 2014 and was back in the hospital again last year with a serious case of influenze that required the use of life support.
The former minister spent 30 years as a leader in the Labor Party. He was indicted in absentia in Tel Aviv District Court last month on various charges of corruption, including breach of public trust, tax offenses, fraud and money laundering. His attorney appeared on his behalf to deny all the charges, Israel Radio reported.
