The wife of Jordanian prisoner gave birth to a baby boy in Nablus on Monday, one of several cases of babies being conceived though sperm smuggling, the Palestinian Maan news agency reported.
Dr. Salem Khaizaran, general director of the clinic, told Maan that the baby was healthy and is considered to be an "ambassador of freedom."
Salam Nazzal, the wife of Jordanian prisoner Sharif Nazzal, allegedly named her newborn son after her imprisoned husband after giving birth at the Razan Medical Center in West Bank city of Nablus. According to Maan, Nazzal is sentenced to 20 years in jail, having already served seven, meaning he was in prison during the conception of his son.
Nazzal refused to give details of the smuggling of the sperm, due to security concerns.
