Palestinian president in 'excellent' health but still in hospitalPalestinian president Mahmud Abbas, hospitalised since May 20 with pneumonia, is in excellent health but no date has been set for his discharge, a hospital official said on Saturday. “His state of health is excellent but the doctors have not yet decided the date of his release,” said Saed Sarahna, the head of the Istishari Arab Hospital where Abbas is being treated. Pictures of Abbas walking around the wards and reading a newspaper were published on Monday, in an apparent attempt to calm rumours that his condition was worse than officially reported.
