Shimon Peres sedated after stroke
Former Israeli President Shimon Peres is in "critical but stable" condition after suffering a stroke Tuesday and will not undergo surgery at this time, according to a statement from his office and the hospital where he's being treated.
Peres, 93, suffered a stroke with "a component of bleeding," Dr. Yitzhak Kreiss said.
"After the completion of doctors' consultations held a few minutes ago, it was decided that there is no indication at this stage that would justify surgery," CNN cited the statement as saying.
He will remain sedated and intubated in the intensive care unit at Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan.
