RIYADH, January 12 (CIC) – Baby Haneen is in stable condition and on her way to recovery, five days after being surgically separated from her clinically dead sister, Farah.
The parasitic infant twins from Gaza were operated on at King Abdullah Specialized Children’s Hospital in Riyadh. The operating team was headed by surgeon and Royal Court Advisor, Dr Abdullah Al Rabeeah, who is also the Supervisor General of King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief).
“Haneen is breathing normally and is receiving her nutrition intravenously,” Dr Al Rabeeah reported. He added that all of the Palestinian infant’s vital signs were now stable and that she had been removed from an artificial respirator.
Haneen is expected to stay in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for a few more days, after which she will be transferred to the General Pediatric Unit for medical rehabilitation.
The separation was performed by decree of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The parasitic Palestinian twins travelled from Gaza via Amman, Jordan in December and were medically evacuated to Riyadh for the operation.
