Abbas to remain in Ramallah hospital

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will remain in hospital, the Palestinian Presidency said on Sunday.

“Abbas’ discharge from hospital has been postponed,” the presidency said in a statement, without giving any further details.

Earlier Sunday, Abbas’ media office said the Palestinian leader will be discharged from Ramallah’s Arab Advisory Hospital at 00:02 p.m. local time.

Abbas was taken to hospital last week after suffering a fever. He remained there, where he was examined by doctors at the hospital’s cardiological department.

Earlier this month, Abbas, 82, underwent a medical operation on one of his ears. Since then, he has returned to the hospital twice, prompting speculation about the state of his health.
