Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan’s condition is improving after contracting an infection following a liver transplant in Belarus.
Dagan is still being kept sedated and on a respirator, and is being kept in isolation to minimize his chances of additional infections.
US, German and Swedish hospitals refused to operate on Dagan, according to Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko, who gave a press conference on Tuesday. “No one wanted to conduct this operation on a former head of the Mossad,” Lukashenko said. Israeli officials decried Lukashenko’s conference as an attempt to get publicity for Belarus.
