Palestinian leader Abbas hospitalized for surgery


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is said to be undergoing minor ear surgery in a West Bank hospital and is scheduled to be discharged in a few hours, Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Tuesday.

 

Although his aides maintain that the Palestinian leader is in good health, Abbas, 83, is said to be suffering from health issues and rumors have circulated in recent that month that he may have cancer.

 

A source told i24NEWS that the surgery related to an unspecified stomach issue rather than his ear.
