india Updated: Jul 26, 2006 18:25 IST

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was rushed to the intensive care unit of a Tel Aviv hospital on Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Sharon's condition had deteriorated significantly earlier in the week. Sharon has been in a coma since suffering a massive stroke January 4.

Sharon's blood will be filtered to remove excess fluids that have been accumulating in his body, Shiba Hospital said in a statement.

He is also receiving antibiotics intravenously to treat a bacterial infection in his blood.

Hospital spokesman Anat Golev declined to answer further questions.
