MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud – Yisrael Beytenu) suffered a broken collarbone Sunday as he rode his bicycle in the Samaria region.

A Magen David Adom team evacuated Feiglin to Beilinson hospital in Petach Tikva, and reported that he was in stable condition and fully conscious, with a possible fracture in the collarbone and shoulder.

MK Feiglin wrote on his Facebook page just before noontime, “I went out to ride my bicycle on the mountains of Samaria, as I do every day. Regrettably, I fell in the course of the ride and injured my shoulder. I was taken to Beilinson and it turned out that I broke my collarbone.”

"My general condition is good and I hope that this will turn out to be a kaparat avonot [an atonement for sins]. Thanks to all those expressing interest and worrying. Promise to update later on.”

Feiglin is a seasoned cyclist. He can be seen doing some pedaling at minute 4:00 in the video, “The Riddle,” which tells his story.
