A West Bank hospital official says Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will undergo a heart test after being hospitalized.
The official says Abbas, 81, will undergo a cardiac catheterization, a procedure in which a thin tube is inserted into a blood vessel to examine the strength of his heart.
Abbas was taken to a hospital in the West Bank city of Ramallah after feeling “tired” Thursday, according to a Palestinian official.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the president’s condition with the media.
