JNS.org – Former Israeli president Shimon Peres, 92, suffered a mild heart attack and was hospitalized on Thursday. Despite the scare, Peres’s personal doctor, Dr. Raphi Walden, said the statesman was in “excellent” condition after undergoing a “successful” cardiac catheterization.

“His only complaint to his staff is that he cannot continue with today’s itinerary,” Walden said.

“I want to calm everyone down and say that my father is in great condition. He experienced a relatively minor cardiac incident this morning but his heart is beating and strong. He is energetic and was conscious the entire time. His heart was not damaged and we hope he will be out of the hospital soon. Other than resting, he is also reading, writing and keeping up with what’s going on. He is also negotiating with doctors about returning to work,” said Peres’s son, Chemi, Israel Hayom reported.
