RAMALLAH, West Bank —

An aide says Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has been discharged from a West Bank hospital after undergoing two days of tests and treatment.

Fayyad, 61, checked into Ramallah Hospital with abdominal pain Monday, apparently caused by a problem with his pancreas.

His spokesman, Jamal Zakout, said Fayyad left the hospital on Wednesday.

Fayyad, a smoker, suffered a heart attack two years ago while visiting family in the United States.

Since 2007, Fayyad has been prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, the self-rule government that administers parts of the West Bank.
