Henry Kissinger has been hospitalized after a fall at his home.
The former Secretary of State suffered the injury at his residence in New York City. He was rushed to an area hospital for treatment.
According to Reuters, Kissinger was hospitalized at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center. A spokesperson for the hospital said they expected him to be released later today.
Although the hospital revealed Kissinger suffered a fall at his home, no other details about the accident were given.
The Examiner reports that Kissinger was previously hospitalized for stomach pain in South Korea back in 2010. His condition was deemed “not serious” by doctors at the Severance Hospital in Seoul. He was treated and promptly released.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Henry Kissinger found himself in the middle of controversy after he supposedly predicted the end of Israel last year. The New York Post columnist Cindy Adams said that Kissinger said Israel would cease to exist in 10 years.
According to JTA, a representative from Henry Kissinger’s New York office said he didn’t make the prediction.
Tara Butzbaugh explained:
“It’s not a misquote. He didn’t say it.”
Henry A. Kissinger became the 56th Secretary of State in 1973. He would hold this position until 1977. Kissinger also served as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs from 1969 until 1977.
The former Secretary of State has also penned a number of books since his days at the White House. In addition to three separate memoirs, Kissinger has also authored a number of tomes about public policy. His latest literary effort was 2011′s On China.
Kissinger has also received a number of honors and awards over the years. Shortly before his alleged prediction, he received the Israel’s President’s Medal in 2012. He also received the McCloy Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Council on Germany in 2011.
No additional information about Kissinger being hospitalized is currently available.
