The president of Kurdistan in a Israeli hospital

The president of Iraqi Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani is said to have been taken secretly to a hospital in central Tel Aviv after a brief stopover in Amman, Jordan. This is not confirmed by any other source. Neither is the report that Barzani had been wounded Friday, Nov. 24, in an assassination attempt by one of his aides in Irbil, the Kurdish capital. Kurdish officials only admitted he was out of the country, while a source close to Barzani’s Kurdistan Democratic Party said he had been taken out of Iraq Friday for medical treatment without mentioning his destination.
