Abbas Relative Has Heart Surgery in Tel Aviv Hospital

The brother-in-law of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had heart surgery at a Tel Aviv hospital.

The surgery for the brother of Abbas’ wife at the private Assuta Medical Center last week was deemed successful, Israeli media reported. The patient reportedly was recovering and was being guarded by security officers.

Abbas’ wife underwent surgery at the same hospital in June.

Family members of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, including his mother-in-law, daughter and granddaughter, have received medical treatment in Israeli hospitals.
