Concerns Over The Health Of PA Chairman Abbas


The Israeli security establishment is carefully watching the condition of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), who was hospitalized on Saturday morning for a number of hours and then released.

According to the Haaretz report, the official PA word is that he was in a Ramallah hospital for a number of hours due to exhaustion, which he is suffering surrounding recent events and Israel’s actions on Har Habayis during the past two weeks. However, “other” unnamed reports state the PA leader’s deterioration in his health is far more serious than being reported.

It is also stated that Israeli and PA sources are concerned over Abu Mazen’s health, citing the situation may hasten a change in PA leadership.

  1. For all you ppl who don’t understand why this is a major concern. No one cares about Abbas. Of course not. Yea Zol er peigerrin. Trouble is it creates a power vacuum. And that is a very big problem. It could lead to hamas or even isis or worse if that’s even possible. So yea israel is watching very closely as they should be. And I’ll bet they plan a b and c in case he does die.

  2. Hey MoisheinGolus, what peace partner? The only piece that donkey wants is a piece of every Jewish person’s heart.
    Hope that he dies a terrible and painful death real soon.
