Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s wife, Amina Abbas (Umm Mazen), was discharged from the Assuta hospital in Tel Aviv today (June 15) after a successful leg operation on Friday, according to a report by Ynet
. Her surgery took place at the same time three Israeli teens went missing and were apparently kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists.
According to the report, Umm Mazen checked into the private hospital on Thursday night. She had round the clock security guards posted outside her room.
Israeli doctors regularly treat Palestinian patients. Hamas leader Ismael Haniyeh’s granddaughter was treated at Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Petah Tikva this past November.
And earlier this month, his mother-in-law was granted entry from the Gaza Strip to receive cancer treatment at a Jerusalem hospital.
