JERICHO, West Bank - Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Israel on Sunday for treatment of a worsening case of COVID-19, the Palestine Liberation Organization said.
Witnesses said Erekat, 65, was on a stretcher when he was placed inside an Israeli ambulance outside his home in Jericho, in the occupied West Bank. Erekat, who is also secretary-general of the PLO, disclosed on Oct. 8 that he had contracted coronavirus.
There is heightened concern over Erekats vulnerability to the illness because he underwent a lung transplant in the United States in 2017.
Following his contraction of COVID-19, and due to the chronic health problems he faces in the respiratory system, Dr. Erekats condition now requires medical attention in a hospital, the PLOs Negotiations Affairs Department said in a statement.
It said he would be treated at a hospital in Tel Aviv, but did not identify the facility.
A member of Fatah, the most powerful faction within the PLO, Erekat has been one of the most high-profile faces of the Palestinian leadership for decades.

Hope they checked him for a suicide vest before admitting him to the hospital.
There have been cases of palestinians who, upon completing a course of treatment in Israeli hospitals, have at their last visit attempted to kill their doctors and nurses and however many others they could as they left.
Israel is coal on their enemies heads.
Yeah, and now they turn to top Israeli doctors to save his sorry life. Or, if he dies, they will turn on these Jewish doctors and accuse them of killing him. Lose, lose, no matter how you look at it. They should have refused to take him in to an Israeli hospital. Are there no hospitals in the Pali territories or don’t the Pali leaders trust the skills of those doctors in Pali hospitals? Hmmmm?
I see you know your Proverbs. ;^)
They should evacuate him to somewhere in Europe or China, because if he dies in an Israeli hospital......
High quality free medical treatment for Palestinians is a major source of agents and intel for Israel. The Israelis have their faults but they are not lacking in cleverness.
Should have been sent to Iran...
On a resume, if that employment history doesn't scream competence and good character, what does?
Israel is nuts to save this evil terrorist gangsters life.
Stupid to be treated at home for ten days prior!
May Allah bring death to Israel ...
... after they cure me of this virus.
Chief Palestinian negotiator...
Negotiator, yeah, good one.
The irony, eh?
And if this pig dies, they will blame Israel.
8. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord whall consume . . . . "
The man of sin is a senior PLO official on the West Bank. One might speculate that Erekat is the "he" who is restraining him.
