This is the third time that Essebsi was admitted to the military hospital in over a month.

He was taken to the hospital on June 21 for medical examinations over a sudden indisposition diagnosed "as not dangerous."

Born in November 1926, Essebsi took over the Tunisian presidency after winning the 2014 presidential election.
