Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu came late to the Knesset on Monday because of a last-minute decision to visit his father, Shmuel Ben-Artzi, at Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein-Kerem Hospital.
Ben-Artzi's son Hagi said his father, who is 97 years-old, has been suffering from what he called "medical complications" and that Netanyahu came to the hospital because Ben-Artzi underwent a "special medical procedure."
Shmuel Ben-Artzi was a lecturer at Teachers College in Nahalal and authored several books.
"We hope he can get him out of what he has been going through with the help of God and the good doctors of Hadassah," Hagi Ben-Artzi said.
