A healthy Syrian baby was born last week at Safed’s Ziv Medical Center to a 25-year-old woman brought in from Quneitra after her water had broken.Amid ongoing fighting in Syria, the woman told medical staff the situation was extremely tough: “My pregnancy was very difficult. Because of the war, there is a shortage of food and there are no health and birthing facilities. I knew that I was already in my 40th week and the birth was imminent, and there was no one who could help me.”
