The head of Morocco’s senate, Enaam Mayara, has been hospitalized in Jordan after his health deteriorated, casting doubt on his landmark scheduled visit Thursday at the Knesset.

The Knesset’s spokesperson’s office said Sunday that Mayara was set to make an official visit to Israel’s parliament. His trip would mark the first visit by a Moroccan leader to Israel’s legislative body, as well as being one of the most high-level visits by a foreign Muslim politician to the Knesset.

But according to Walla, Mayara has been at a hospital in Jordan since yesterday and doctors will soon decide if he will be able to continue to Israel.
