Israel: Baby of mother shot in recent Islamic terror attack pronounced dead


The world sides with these savages. The good are vilified and the evil exalted. My colleagues and I have been libeled, our names dragged through the mud, because we stand against this horror — no matter. We are right, and good will triumph in the end. And the quislings who aided and abetted these savages will get what is so richly coming to them.

The baby of Shira Ish-ran, delivered after his mother had been shot and critically wounded in Sunday’s terror attack near Ofra, was pronounced dead on Wednesday, Shaare Zedek Medical Center announced in a statement.

The parents had met their baby son earlier Wednesday morning, the hospital said.
The baby was delivered by cesarean at 30 weeks due to the wounds Ish-ran sustained in the shooting attack at a bus stop outside Ofra. Ish-ran remains in serious condition but is said to be improving.

Amichai Ish-ran, her husband, remains in moderate condition after he was shot in the leg during the attack.

Public figures quickly expressed their sorrow over the news.

President Reuven Rivlin offered his condolences and called the parents, “heroes of truth.”

“We stand with you in a strong embrace and we will not be silent until the arm of terror is rooted out.”

Education Minister Naftali Bennett called the death a tragedy, writing on Facebook, “our heart is with Shira and Amichai, the heart cries out.”

“It’s a vile murder of terrorists that stopped being afraid of us. We have to bring back deterrence that was lost. Otherwise, a wave of murders are on the way. Not with statements. In actions.”
