Ariel Sharon dead?this is the story for now.
In the past few days there has been a deterioration in the condition of former prime minister Ariel Sharon's medical condition, a Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer spokesman said.
The 11th prime minister of Israel has been in a coma since January 2006.
The 85-year-old has been taken care of at Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer for most of the time since he was felled by two strokes.
He has seen sporadic positive responses to scans that measure brain activity, but has remained in a deep vegetative state since his initial hospitalization.I just got an email saying that Ichud Hatzalah (a private ambulance service) says that Sharon is confirmed dead.
UPDATE 9:39 PM
Reports of Sharon's death are premature.
Previous Report of the Death of Ariel Sharon was a Zaka national false report mistakenly! We apologize for the misleading information!
