Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Palestine Liberation Organization announced, on Sunday, that the Secretary of the Organization’s Executive Committee, Saeb Erekat, has been transferred to an Israeli hospital due to his health condition following his infection with the emerging coronavirus.

The Negotiations Affairs Department of the PLO said, in a statement, that “Erekat, who is infected with the Coronavirus, and due to chronic health problems in his respiratory system, is transferred to a hospital in the lands of the year 1948, because his condition requires special medical attention and supervision.”
