Jordan Palace says king to receive spine surgery in Germany

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) – Jordan’s monarch is travelling to Germany for a spine surgery, Jordan’s palace announced on Saturday.

King Abdullah II, 60, will undergo a surgery to treat “a herniated disk in the thoracic spine” at a hospital in Frankfurt next week, and will return home after a recovery period of one week.

The statement from the Arab kingdom’s Royal Hashemite Court said the king suffers from intermittent spine pain “as a result of parachute jumping during his years of service in special operations”, and doctors advised him to receive the surgery as the pain increased recently.
