A statement from the Jerusalem hospital where Sharon is being treated said there was no change in Sharon's condition. The statement described the condition as "serious and stable."

About three weeks ago, doctors began to try to revive Sharon from an artificially induced coma following the stroke, but attempts to wake him have not succeeded.
