The Hadassah Ein Karem hospital announced that Communications Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) will remain under supervision for the next few days.

Kara's condition is defined as moderate and hospital officials say that he is suffering from weakness.

Kara had fainted Wednesday afternoon at the entrance to the Knesset plenum.

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.
