Former Israeli President Shimon Peres hospitalized after stroke

Translation: "I wish former President Shimon Peres a speedy recovery".

When a far-right Jewish Israeli opposed to the peace deal shot dead Rabin in November 1995, Peres became prime minister. It was announced that he was put under sedation to ease the continued treatment and connected to a respirator.

The Israeli media reported that the president had two CT scans on Tuesday night that showed no change or improvement.

Initially, the office of the ninth president said Peres was "conscious and in stable condition, but suddenly, his condition took a turn for the worse".

Former Israeli president and Nobel Peace Prize victor Shimon Peres suffered a "major stroke" on Tuesday and was being treated in intensive care, one of his doctors said.? "He is now receiving medical treatment".

He twice served as prime minister and was president from 2007 to 2014.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office says he is praying for Peres' full recovery, Daniel Estrin reports from Tel Aviv.

On Twitter, opposition leader Isaac Herzog said he hopes Peres "returns to have his clear, wise, and sober voice heard".

The implant was recommended by Peres's doctors, including his personal physician, Dr. Raphi Walden, after he was diagnosed in July with atrial fibrillation.

Peres successfully underwent minor surgery at Tel HaShomer Hospital in January.

On January 14, 2016 the same hospital released the senior statesman in stable condition after he had suffered a mild heart attack. According to The Associated Press, he served three terms as prime minister and held the posts of foreign minister and finance minister.

Since leaving the presidency, Peres frequently hosted public events at his peace centre, bringing together Arabs and Jews in efforts to promote coexistence.
