Shimon Peres Fighting For His Life

1

After suffering a stroke yesterday, former Israeli President Shimon Peres is still fighting for his life. He is said to be in serious, yet stable condition, Ynet reports.

In an update to the press this morning, Dr. Yitzhak Kreiss, director of Sheba Medical Center, and Dr. Rafi Walden, personal physician and son-in-law of Mr. Peres, said, “When there was a pause in the administration of anesthetic drugs, we realized that he is responsive and probably attentive to what we tell him. He squeezed our hands.”

Kreiss added: “Mr. Peres made it through the night safely. His condition is stable. Serious, but stable. We are moving him to the intensive care unit of the neurology department for further treatment and observation. He is still under the supervision of a multidisciplinary team of experts and will undergo another assessment in the afternoon. We are in close contact with the family, which has accompanied him and not left his bedside. We are sharing all decisions with the family.”

  1. He should have a full recovery, and then speak out that all he did to hurt the security of the State of Israel was wrong and ask Hashem and the people of Israel for forgiveness.
