Gaza Baby Delivered from Dead Mother’s Womb Perishes

The MicsatgesUK magazine has learnt of the death of a baby that was saved from her dying mother’s womb following an Israeli airstrike in southern Gaza.

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, a Caesarean section was performed to deliver baby Sabreen al-Sakani in a hospital in Rafah.

Using a hand pump to force air into the baby’s lungs, medics performed CPR on her in the midst of frantic situations.

Nevertheless, she passed away on Thursday and was buried next her mother, who gave her name.

16 children were slain in two airstrikes in Rafah over the weekend, including baby Sabreen. They were all slain in a bombardment that went after their apartment block.

The infrastructure and militants of Hamas were the targets of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF).

Just before midnight on Saturday, Sabreen’s mother, husband Shukri, and their three-year-old daughter Malak were asleep when the Israeli air hit on the al-Sakani family home occurred. Sabreen’s mother was seven and a half months pregnant at the time.

When emergency professionals arrived at the scene, the baby was still alive within her mother’s womb, despite Sabreen having sustained severe injuries and her husband and Malak having been killed.

They hurried Sabreen to the hospital, where the baby was delivered by an emergency Caesarean section by medical professionals.

After it seemed that Sabreen had stabilised, she was put in an incubator. Doctors classified her health as critical at the time.

At birth, she weighed a mere 1.4 kg (3.1 lbs) and was experiencing acute respiratory distress, which the physicians attributed to her premature birth.

The chief of the emergency neo-natal unit at Emirati Hospital in Rafah, Dr. Mohammed Salama, stated after the baby was born, “This child should have been in the mother’s womb at this time, but she was deprived of this right.”

Mirvat al-Sakani, Sabreen’s maternal grandmother, told the BBC that the family intended to adopt the youngster.

At least two thirds of the more than 34,000 people who have died in Gaza since the conflict started on October 7th are women and children, according to the health ministry in Gaza, which is governed by Hamas.

According to Israeli estimates, over 1,200 Israelis and foreigners—mostly civilians—were slain and 253 more were taken as prisoners back to Gaza before Israel began its offensive.

Since the IDF had earlier in the conflict ordered civilians to head south to safety, an estimated 1.4 million people have crammed themselves into Rafah.

But according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel is preparing a ground invasion into Rafah in order to destroy Hamas and free the hostages.

Two new tent camps have been spotted on satellite pictures in southern Gaza. According to Israeli media sources, plans are underway to transfer residents from Rafah.

Instead of invading Rafah completely, which may spark an even worse humanitarian situation, the US has urged Israel to take a targeted approach.
