Likud MK Ayoub Kara was taken from the Knesset by ambulance to the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital on Thursday with chest pains in what could be related to stress of the question of his ministerial appointment.
His situation has stabilized Kara’s spokesman, Rafi Halabi, told The Jerusalem Post. A statement received from Ayub Kara's office stated that Kara would be deputy minister at the level of minister.
Kara will deal with relations with states and areas in the Middle East.
Kara ran a strong campaign to become a minister.
On Sunday, the Druse MK met with the Netanyahu and the prime minister had shown understanding and a willingness to deal with the needs of the Druse community and all minorities, said a statement from Kara’s office.
The majority of Druse serve in the IDF, many in combat units, Kara’s spokesman, Rafi Halabi, told the Post just before the meeting, adding: “If we are good enough to go to war, we are good enough to be in the government.”
