Ex-Mossad chief health deteriorates
9:06, — society
Meir Dagan faced complications after an operation in Belarus.
Sources close to the former chief of the Israeli intelligence service refute Lukashenka's words about refusal of the USA and Sweden to perform a surgery on Meir Dagan. Though the Belarusian ruler said on Tuesday, October16, that former Mossad chief Meir Dagan successfully underwent a liver transplant surgery performed by Belarusian doctors, Israeli media report about the deteriorated condition of the Israeli former intelligence head, newsru.co.il writes.
The liver transplant operation, which took place about five days ago, is reported to be successful. However, Haaretz says Dagan faced post-operative complications.
He is in an isolation ward in a Belarusian hospital (it is unknown in which one). His condition is reported by doctors to be critical but stable. According to sources close to Dagan, it's too early to say if liver rejection will be avoided.
Israel Hayom newspaper writes that for the few past weeks the political elite of Israel was seeking opportunities to help Dagan, who has serious problems with health.
The portal ynet publishes a statement of ex-Mossad chief's associates refuting Lukashenka's remark that the USA and Sweden had refused to operate on Dagan. They claim there were no attempts to send Dagan to Sweden and he didn't meet criteria for a liver transplant in the USA.
