Three infants died tragically in separate incidents on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

A three-years-old who underwent tonsils removal surgery a few days ago, began to bleed uncontrollably and went unconscious. He was brought to a Terem clinic where medics attempted to save his life and later brought him to the Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem where they were later forced to announce his death.

A year-old choked on soup at a nursery in Lod and was brought to the Asaf Harofeh hospital where they were forced to announce his death.


On Tuesday night, a year-old died at Ichilov hospital in the ICU with a severe, rare blood infection. The district branch of the Health Ministry has made contact with those who were in contact with the infant to begin preventative care.
