Netanyahu Undergoes Medical Examination

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday received a routine checkup at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, and was pronounced in good health by doctors. Among other procedures, Netanyahu underwent a colonoscopy, which he passed with flying colors, doctors said.

Sunday's examinations were part of a continuing round of treatment Netanyahu has undergone since he took office. About a year and a half ago, before becoming Prime Minister, doctors removed a small polyp, that proved to be benign.
