 Rumors: 87-year-old Abu Mazen died of a   heart attack

Palestinian social media has been raging for days about the serious illness of 87-year-old PA leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) .

According to some reports, Abu Mazen died of a heart attack.

Abu Mazen has not been seen in public for a very long time. Recently, the powers of the head of Fatah were transferred to the former Minister of Civil Affairs of the PA, Hussein al-Sheikh. This should “stabilize” political process in the autonomy and pave the way for the departure of Abu Mazen.

Abu Mazen himself is expected to speak today in order to refute the rumors about his death. PA spokesman Azzam al-Ahmed said: “Abu Mazen is healthy and strong as iron.”
