14 Pound Baby Born in Haifa

A 13-pound-7-ounce (6.245 kilograms) baby born at the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa this week surprised his mother and doctors, who were not able to find proper baby pajamas in his size after he was delivered by C-section in the 38th week of pregnancy.

The doctors calculated that the baby born is the approximate size and weight of a six-month old infant. Guinness recently reported that a baby weighing 13.49 pounds (6.12 kilograms) was born in Germany this July and in August, a baby weighing 13.66 pounds (6.2 kilograms) was born in Spain.

“This is the second largest baby that was born in the 35 years that I’ve worked at Rambam,” said Prof. Shraga Blazer, the director of the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. “Twenty years ago, I delivered a baby that weighed 6.3 kilograms (about 13.9 pounds). But even when I worked in the U.S., I did not see such a thing.”

Mother and baby are being monitored at the hospital.

Israel’s Security Cabinet is meeting in a marathon session to decide the next step in Operation Protective Edge.

More than 1,550 individuals have immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in the first five months of 2014 alone, more than double the 693 who arrived in the corresponding period last year.

Signs that Islamic State (ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) terrorists have arrived in Egypt have appeared in the Sinai Peninsula.

Shlomy Zachary, an Israeli human rights lawyer, noted that Israeli cooperation with previous UN investigations has helped mitigate criticism of Israel – for example, in a 2010 UN investigation of the so-called flotilla incident.

Israelis may have to blame Qatar for the current round of lethal rocket fire, if a report published in Arab media is true.

So imagine, you’re working in the field harvesting cucumbers (or whatever is in season right now) and suddenly the siren goes off – Hamas is shooting rockets at you.
