Candidate for Labor Party leadership MK Amir Peretz (Labor)
was examined by MDA teams in Gush Halav after fainting Saturday during a
campaign event in the Upper Galilee village.
Peretz’s medical condition was attributed to a combination of dehydration and exhaustion,
but the would-be Labor leader did not require hospitalization after the
incident. After an hour of rest, Peretz, who announced his candidacy earlier
this month, was back on his feet – and on the campaign trail.
