Mother who lost her infant in terror attack vows to have ‘many more babies’

Shira Ish-Ran, the pregnant mother who was severely wounded and lost her baby boy in a West Bank shooting attack earlier this week, vows to have “many more babies” in response to the terror attack.

Ish-Ran, who was 30 weeks pregnant at the time of the terror attack outside the Ofra settlement, was seriously wounded in the shooting, and doctors delivered the infant in an emergency C-section hours later. While the mother’s condition has since steadily improved, the baby’s condition deteriorated and he died Wednesday evening.

After her condition improved further and a day after her four-day-old son was laid to rest, Ish-Ran was quoted by Hebrew-language media as saying, in her first remarks since the attack: “I will prove to them, I will show them. I will bring many more babies into this world. Am Yisrael chai.”
