Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to undergo surgery for hernia found during checkup

Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Netanyahu will under­go surgery for a her­nia on Sun­day, his office announced in a state­ment. 
Netanyahu’s office said the her­nia was found Sat­ur­day night dur­ing a rou­tine check­up. Dur­ing the pro­ce­dure, he will under­go full anes­the­sia and be uncon­scious. In the Unit­ed States, her­nias are com­mon, affect­ing 25% of all men through­out their life­time. 
Jus­tice Min­is­ter Yariv Levin, a close ally of Netanyahu, will serve as act­ing prime min­is­ter tem­porar­i­ly.
“Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Jus­tice Min­is­ter Yariv Levin will serve as act­ing prime min­is­ter,” the trans­lat­ed state­ment read.
While the prime min­is­ter is in good health, last year, doc­tors revealed Netanyahu had a known heart con­di­tion after he was fit­ted with a pace­mak­er to con­trol his heart­beat.
