Former Mossad Chief Meir Dagan's medical condition has noted an improvement, the Belarusian media reported Thursday.

 

Dagan, 67, underwent a liver transplant in the eastern European country some two weeks ago.

Immediately after the operation his condition was deemed critical. He was sedated and placed in isolation, as doctors feared he had contracted a life-threatening infection.

 

According to the reports, Dagan is no longer sedated and has even been able to get out of bed. His condition is now considered stable.

 

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko revealed the news of Dagan's surgery on Tuesday.

 

Lukashenko said that Belarus agreed to perform the surgery after the United States, Germany and Sweden refused to do so.

 

Dagan's associates dismissed the claim, saying that he never sought treatment in Sweden, and that he chose Belarus after he failed to meet the US' criteria for a transplant.

 

On Wednesday, Israeli security officials expressed concerns that the fact that the Belarusian president had exposed Dagan's medical condition and whereabouts would place his safety at risk.

 

They added that Israel must demand that Belarus immediately step up security around the hospital where Dagan is staying.
