Likud Knesset member Ariel Sharon, the former housing minister, was reported Wednesday to be resting comfortably after undergoing gallbladder surgery.

The surgery was carried out Tuesday at the Sheba government hospital in Tel Hashomer.

Surgeons reported that the one-hour operation went well, and that Sharon should be sent home in a few days.

Sharon had been admitted to the hospital in early July, complaining of pains. Doctors discovered an infected gallbladder but decided to wait for surgery, meanwhile treating the infection.
