Palestinian Authority Health Minister Fathi Abu Mugli told WAFA that "a Jewish woman who was in Ramallah for unknown reasons came to the medical complex suffering from abdominal pain and after being examined," it turned out she was in labor.
The woman was reportedly asked if she wanted to be transferred by
ambulance to an Israeli hospital, but "the mother refused and insisted
on staying and delivering the baby in the complex," Mugli said.
The baby was born prematurely at 5.1 pounds (2.3 kilograms) and placed
in an intensive care incubator unit, according to the report.
According to the PA health minister, Israel was notified of the baby's
birth and it was requested that she be transferred to Israel but the new
mother supposedly declined, WAFA reported.
