Dubai woman traveling to West Bank goes into labor at Allenby border crossing, receives emergency medical assistance from an IDF Druse officer who delivered baby, named Hadi, after himself.
An Arab woman who delivered her baby at the Israeli-Jordanian border crossing on Tuesday named the infant after the IDF officer who helped her give birth.
The woman was so thankful to the Israeli, a Druse officer who serves in the Israeli Civil Administration, that she named her baby after him – Hadi.
While Druse news sites in Israel were fascinated with the story, Palestinian news sites raised doubts about the story that was first published on Tuesday on the Facebook page of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the territories.
They claimed that the fact that the woman’s face in the pictures released is blurred, and that neither her identity nor the details regarding her arrival at the border crossing were published, raised many questions.
