Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas left a Ramallah hospital more than a week after being admitted with a high fever.
Abbas, 82, was discharged from the hospital on Monday. He said as he left that he would return to work on Tuesday, the Palestinian WAFA news agency reported.
He said in a statement upon leaving the hospital “Thank God Almighty that I came out of the hospital today fully healthy, and return to my work starting tomorrow, God willing.
“This is due to God Almighty and this great hospital model of our Palestinian hospitals, including wise management, great doctors and nurses, and this actually shows that the health of our people is in good hands, and that the most precious thing we should care about is the health of our people and this is what I saw here and in other hospitals, which we are proud of.”
Abbas thanked the world leaders who called him or asked after his health.
