Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer was hospitalized at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer due to weakness. Fischer is undergoing tests at the hospital's emergency room.
Earlier Tuesday, a medical team was called to Fischer's home in Herzliya after he reported he was feeling ill and lost consciousness. He is now in stable condition. Fischer is expected to leave his office next week. (Yaron Kelner and Gilad Morag)
