    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has just left a Ramallah hospital in the West Bank where he underwent a minor ear surgery five days earlier, according to the state Palestinian Wafa news agency.

    Mahmoud Abbas has been taken to hospital for three medical checkups over the course of a week, Palestinian officials said. The Palestinian president has been transferred to the electrocardiography unit for exams.

    The Palestinian president left the same hospital just five days ago.

    For health reasons, Abbas, 82, was unable to attend the emergency Islamic summit held in Turkey on May 18 over the latest developments in Palestine.
