Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz was released from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer on Sunday after having visited the hospital after feeling unwell for a consultation with his personal physician Dr. Shlomo Segev.
Gantz underwent tests at the hospital before being released.
Afterward, Gantz tweeted a video of himself in his office, assuring Israelis that "everything is ok."

"In times like this it's not worth it to take too many risks," said Gantz. "We stopped, a small check, everything's ok. I'm back in the Kirya, I'm continuing my work [and] soon the cabinet meeting will start. We're here in order to continue serving you."
In August, Gantz underwent back surgery at Sheba for a serious back injury caused during his military service that he had suffered from for years and that had recently worsened. The visit on Sunday was unrelated to the back surgery.
