Netanyahu scheduled for hernia surgery…


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel will undergo surgery on Sunday night to treat a hernia, his office said in a statement.

The operation comes at a time when Mr. Netanyahu is under mounting pressure as the war in Gaza drags on and international calls for a cease-fire grow louder.

Mr. Netanyahu’s office said that he had been diagnosed with a hernia and that an operation would take place on Sunday evening “under full anesthesia.”

“Justice Minister Yariv Levin will be temporarily taking over his duties,” it said in a statement, without providing further details.
