The Israeli prime minister's condition was good after part of his intestines was removed, the aide said. Hadassah Hospital said he was returned to the intensive care unit. Before the surgery, doctors said Sharon's life was in danger.
The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss Sharon's medical condition.
Sharon's illness and Hamas's election victory has created unprecedented confusion in the Israel, Palestine arena. I doubt anyone has any idea what will happen over the next few months.
