Israeli ex-PM Sharon``s condition in steady decline: Hospital
Jerusalem: The condition of Israeli former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who has been in a coma since a 2006 stroke, continues to decline, a hospital official said on Monday.
In his daily update to reporters since Sharon took a turn for the worse last week, Zeev Rotstein, director of the Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv, said the 85-year-old`s cardiovascular system was stable but the function of his other organs was slowly deteriorating.
"Absent anything short of a miracle, his condition will get worse day by day," Rotstein said. "We are continuing to describe his conditional as critical, with immediate danger to his life."
He said Sharon`s two sons remained at his bedside.
One of Israel`s most famous generals, Sharon left his mark on the region through military invasion, Jewish settlement building on captured land and a shock, unilateral decision to pull Israeli troops and settlers out of the Gaza Strip in 2005.
