Conjoined twins born with two heads and one body are fighting for life in an incubator at a hospital in Gaza.
The tots were born on Tuesday and are the first conjoined babies recorded for many years in the city, reports the Mirror. Born at al-Shifa Hospital in Ma’an at 11 a.m., the babies have two heads, two hearts, two lungs, two spines and two hands and legs, but only one chest and one stomach.
Dr. Ayman al-Sahbani, head of the emergency and media department at the hospital, added that this is a very rare condition. The gender of the unnamed little ones remains unclear, as they have been called male in some reports and female in others. Al-Shifa is the largest hospital in the Gaza Strip, with a specialist neonatal unit for dealing with premature and special births.
