Shira Ish-Ran, Who Lost Baby And Was Seriously Injured In 2018 Terror Attack, Delivers Baby Boy


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Two and a half years after she was shot in the stomach, seriously injured and underwent emergency surgery to deliver her baby who survived for just three days, Shira Ish-Ran gave birth this week to a healthy baby boy, according to a report by Arutz Sheva.

In December 2018, terrorists opened fire at the Ofra junction, injuring seven people including 21-year-old Shira, who was in her seventh month of pregnancy, and her husband Amichai. Shira lost a lot of blood in the attack and required numerous blood transfusions.

A month later, when she was back on her feet, Shira thanked the staff at Shaarei Tzedek hospital who treated her, stating that “it was not easy being sick. I have no words to describe how much physical and emotional support they gave us. Thanks to the paramedics in whose merit I am alive. Thanks to Hashem. I feel that the people of Israel supported me emotionally and strengthened us at every juncture. They also strengthened me physically, the blood of the people of Israel is flowing in my veins, it is not mine. This gives me lots of strength.”

Amichai said that “The baby succeeded in accomplishing in three short days more than all of us accomplished….he simply united us….everyone came and wanted to participate and strengthen us, everyone felt connected. I am proud to be part of this nation.”

Later Shira said “I would turn the clock back just to be able to hold my son.” This week she can now hold her newborn son.
