Saturday, July 29, Palestinian sources, including Agency Maan, reported that the head of the PNA Mahmoud Abbas taken to hospital in Ramallah for routine checks. A few hours later, as promised, Abbas left the hospital, passing through all necessary procedures. The Palestinian media noted that the results of the tests met the doctors.
We will remind, in April of this year, Arab media reported rumors that Abbas is in critical condition and placed in a Jordan hospital. This information was soon disproved.
Rumors about the deterioration of the 81-year-old policy appear regularly. So, in June 2016 for a few days longer to appear in public. This caused such a wave of publications and rumors.
Abbas was elected President of the Palestinian authority after the death of its founder Yasser Arafat. Its powers expired in 2009, but new elections were not held. The issue of succession is one of the main causes of rumors.
