Despite the ongoing wave of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis, a brother-in-law of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas underwent life-saving cardiac surgery at the Assuta Medical Center in Tel Aviv last Thursday.

After undergoing cardiac surgery last week, according to Israeli daily Israel Hayom, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’s brother-in-law is still hospitalized and is under heavy guard. An Assuta spokesperson said the hospital could not confirm or deny the information “for reasons of medical confidentiality.”

Last August, Abbas’s wife, Amina, also underwent surgery at the Assuta hospital. The granddaughter of Gaza-based Hamas terrorist leader Ismail Haniyeh has also received medical treatment in Israel, and a senior Fatah official in February underwent a medical procedure at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikvah.
