Erekat, 65, was evacuated from his home in Jericho in the West Bank to the Hadassah Medical Center campus in West Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem neighborhood after his condition worsened on Sunday, the PLO Negotiations Affairs Department said. According to the group’s statement, the politician was transferred due to “chronic health problems he faces in the respiratory system.”

Amichai Stein, a reporter for the Israeli public broadcaster KAN, wrote on social media that Tel Aviv has approved the request by the Palestinian Authority to have Erekat transferred for urgent treatment.
