RAMALLAH, June 15, 2017 (WAFA) – The government Thursday denied media reports that a senior Palestinian official donated money to a non-Palestinian hospital.
Government spokesman Yousef al-Mahmoud rejected claims that Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Abu Amr had donated money to any hospital outside Palestine after receiving treatment there, describing the reports as “baseless.”
Al-Mahmoud said Abu Amr was well and working normally, noting that he was not aware that Abu Amr was receiving any kind of treatment at Palestinian or foreign hospitals.
He slammed the media reports as part of false and slanderous rumors.
Israeli media said an “anonymous” Palestinian official has donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Israeli Rambam hospital in Haifa for saving his life after receiving cancer treatment there.
