I would suggest so, based on this report:
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is alert and making a swift recovery after being hospitalized with a fever over the weekend and should be released within days, a top aide said Monday.
Saeb Erekat said Abbas is in “very good health” after spending several hours visiting the Palestinian leader in a Ramallah hospital Monday.
“He’s recovering and doctors expect him to leave the hospital within the coming two days,” Erekat said.
Saeb Erekat is a huge liar. If he says Abbas is doing well, it means he really isn’t.
You heard it here first.
Update: These photos looked a little too staged to me. For all we know, they were taken during a previous hospital visit.
