Former Israeli PM Ariel Sharon dies


Sharon’s state dramatically aggravated and he was unlikely to survive the crisis, the ex-PM’s doctor, professor Zeev Rotstein, said last Sunday. Sharon was likely to die in a few days, BBC reported.

Sharon lapsed into a coma after a massive stroke in 2006. He spent all the time in coma connected to a volume ventilator.

The ex-PM took part in all Israel’s wars since 1948. Many people consider him a hero in Israel, and many Palestinians hate him.

He suggested building a safety barrier on the West Bank. He also supported active populating of the occupied Palestinian territories.
