Israel's Ariel Sharon Close to Death

Israel's Ariel Sharon Close to Death

By    |   Thursday, 09 January 2014 08:05 PM EST

Former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon’s condition has further deteriorated, leaving him in "critical" condition Thursday, officials at his Tel Aviv hospital said.

Sheba Medical Center announced eight days ago there had been a steady decline in the medical condition of Sharon, 85, who’s been comatose since Jan. 4, 2006.

Sheba Medical Center Director Zeev Rotstein said Jan. 2 the decline was the result of renal failure and a gradual deterioration of other critical organs, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Spokesman Amir Marom said Thursday night Sharon's family was at his bedside and used a Hebrew term suggesting his life was again in immediate danger, the Journal reported.

"He is fighting and we are here with him all the time," son Omri Sharon told The Jerusalem Post Thursday afternoon.

The highly decorated former military leader was prime minister of Israel from 2001 until January 2006, when a brain hemorrhage left him in a coma.
