Haim Silberstein, the father of Shira Ish-Ran, who was seriously wounded in the Ofra junction shooting attack, said that his daughter saw the baby for the first time this morning.

The baby's condition continues to be critical and the doctors are fighting for his life. Shira's condition has stabilized and continues to improve.

On Wednesday, Deputy Minister Hotovely visited the couple at Shaare Zedek.

“Today, I visited Shira and Amichai, who were wounded in the shooting attack in Ofra,” said Hotovely.

“I met both of their wonderful families, the Silberstein family and the Ish-Ran family, who continuously expressed their thanks for the great miracle when Shira regained consciousness, and for all of the prayers from Jews across the world.”

Hotovely said the families had requested that people continue to pray on behalf of Shira, and her newborn child, whose life remains in jeopardy.

“In their name I request to please keep praying. Unfortunately, Shira and Amichai’s baby is still in life-threatening danger.”
