    TEL AVIV - Israeli daily Haaretz on Wednesday said there has been a deterioration in the health of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and that information about his health has been submitted to Israeli political and security officials.
    It said Israel fears a "continued worsening of Abbas' health" could cause a succession fight that could destabilise the West Bank.
    Abbas turned 83 last month and was briefly admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore while in the US for the UN General Assembly.
    The Palestinian National Authority said he was admitted for "routine tests that gave satisfactory results".
    However, since that time, various Arab press outlets have raised doubts over Abbas' health.
