Last week in a drive-by shooting by Palestinian terrorists 7 Israelis were hit, including a 21-year-old pregnant woman. The shooting occurred at a bus stop near the Town of Ofra located in the West Bank. IDF troops nearby responded by firing towards the vehicle, which fled.
Both Amichai and his wife Shira Ish-Ran were seriously injured. Shira was 30 weeks pregnant at the time of the shooting and was forced to deliver the baby prematurely by emergency C-Section.
The premature baby died last Wednesday, despite doctors’ efforts to keep him alive.
He was buried last Wednesday night.
The baby, whom they had not even managed to name, was called Amiad Israel before being buried on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. The family of the baby was accompanied by hundreds of people who came to the place to offer their support to the loved ones in this tragedy.
The baby’s parents, Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran, were both unable to attend the funeral of their child as their wounds were too severe to leave the hospital.
To many, such a terrible thing would break the spirit of the parents.
Not these parents. Watch what they had to say.
