He further indicated that Abu Ragheb would pay a visit to the Jordanian field hospital, which offered medical services for Palestinian citizens.
This marks the second official visit of Abu Ragheb to Ramallah while al-Muashar had previously visited Yasser Arafat in his headquarters directly after the end of the Israeli military siege at the beginning of May. (Albawaba.com)
