On December 16, Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran held a news conference, together with their parents, at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where they were treated for serious wounds sustained in a terrorist shooting that injured six other people outside Ofra a week before – at the end of the festival of Hanukkah. Shira, who was 30-weeks pregnant, was targeted by the terrorist in the drive-by shooting, and rushed to the hospital by an ambulance as a Magen David Adom medic successfully stemmed the constant bleeding. At the hospital, she had an emergency C-section, and her baby was born in critical condition. Tragically, he died three days later, and was buried on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives, after being named Amiad Yisrael.
