Palestinian Preemies Safe in Ashkelon Hospital Bomb Shelter (IMRA)
Last week, a Palestinian woman from Beit Lahia gave birth to premature twins, weighing less than 1.5 kgs. each, at the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

After Hamas began raining down Katyusha rockets on Ashkelon on Saturday, including one that fell a mere 50 meters from the hospital entrance, all the premature babies, including the two Palestinian babies, were transferred to the hospital's bomb shelter for fear that the hospital itself would receive a direct missile hit.
