Minister of Communications Ayoob Kara fainted Wednesday afternoon at the entrance to the Knesset hall. He received medical treatment and was transferred for medical tests.

After the minister collapsed and received treatment, the coalition and opposition jointly decided to withdraw the bills and proposals remaining on the agenda and to conclude the hearing.

Eyewitnesses who were close to the minister said that he was standing in the square behind the entrance to the plenum when he complained to those around him that he felt pains in his chest and other sensations. After a few seconds, he briefly lost consciousness.

Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi, a physician, was summoned to the site to treat Kara, and was immediately joined by a Knesset doctor.

An MDA ambulance dispatched to the scene evacuated Kara to hospital, during which Kara was conscious.
