Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been discharged from hospital after undergoing medical checks on Saturday.
Abbas was hospitalized earlier in the day for exhaustion, according to a statement by his spokesman, Nabil Abu Radeina.
Palestinian sources told Ma'ariv
, the sister publication of the Jerusalem Post
, that Abbas is "suffering from exhaustion because he finished his visit in China and flew back at 3:00 a.m. on Friday morning and went from Amman directly to Ramallah. Then he held an emergency meeting to discuss the issue of the al-Aksa crisis, and this has made it very difficult."
