The Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee and head of the Palestinian negotiating team, Saeb Erekat admitted to the United States to undertake lung transplantation.
The operation will take place in the hospital to Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia, according to the Agency WAFA.
62-year-old Erekat in the last year suffered from severe lung disease, and therefore stood in line for a transplant in Israel, Jordan and the United States.
Recall that in Israel, the information about the possibility of receiving a donor organ Arikata caused a scandal. The national centre of transplantation and the Ministry of health was forced to publish a clarification that Erekat will be able to receive a donor organ in Israel, only if it does not fit to any citizen of Israel, and with the consent of the family of the recipient.
