Hariri Undergoes Heart Stent Operation in Paris
Prime Minister Saad Hariri underwent a heart operation in Paris on Monday, his office said.
“PM Saad Hariri underwent a heart stent operation this morning at the American Hospital of Paris,” the office said in a statement.
“PM Hariri’s private doctor Issam Yassine said the one-hour operation was successful and that PM Hariri is in good health,” the office added.
“He said that the medical procedure was precautionary and that PM Hariri will leave hospital for his home in Paris this evening,” it said.
The premier had undergone medical examinations recently in Paris, on a trip that sparked speculation that he left Lebanon to express political dismay. He later asserted that the visit was not linked to politics.
