Father and mother of Shira Ish-Ran call for more forceful response to terrorism, say they feel army is being held back by government

The parents of a pregnant Israeli woman who was seriously injured in a shooting attack outside a West Bank settlement on Sunday said that their daughter’s condition was improving after a night in intensive care, but still serious. The condition of her baby boy, who was delivered by C-section, has worsened, however, doctors said Monday afternoon, adding that they were fighting to save his life and that the next few hours would be critical.

“We were able to go into intensive care. She opened her eyes and asked for Mom, so we rushed in,” Haim Silverstein, father of Shira Ish-Ran, told reporters Monday afternoon. “She got teary-eyed when she saw us. She got so emotional that we had to leave, because her pulse went up too much.”

Silverstein added, “There’s nothing like seeing your daughter open her eyes and communicate with her eyes, because her mouth was full of tubes.” He said doctors had brought her out of sedation to check on her status, but put her under again afterwards for her safety.

I saw her looking at her dad and he also gave his hand. And then I saw tears streaming down her cheeks. I saw that she was trying to speak, but she couldn’t because of the tubes connected to her. So I sang to her and we told her that all the people of Israel were praying for her. She’s a miracle, and she has the most wonderful medical team looking after her.”

Amichai and Shira Ish Ran, wounded in a December 9 shooting attack in the West Bank, are seen at their wedding. (Courtesy of the family) Ish-Ran was seriously hurt when a group of terrorists in a passing car opened fire at Israeli civilians waiting at a bus stop outside the settlement of Ofra, injuring seven people. Ish-Ran’s husband, Amichai, was moderately injured in the attack.

Doctors performed an emergency cesarean section on Ish-Ran, who was 30 weeks pregnant, and delivered her baby. The boy was immediately transferred to the ward for premature babies at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. Initially said to be in “stable” condition, the baby’s condition worsened, the hospital said Monday. He was hooked up to a ventilator and undergoing treatment in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Amichai’s father, Rafael Ish-Ran, sitting alongside the Silversteins on Monday, said that the couple had visited him and his wife, and had been on their way home to the settlement of Elon Moreh when they were caught in the attack.

“Apparently, the terrorists studied the habits of settlers and they approached, as we’ve seen in videos, slowed down and then fired. They saw a pregnant woman and thought, ‘Great, that’s what we should hit’ and fired,” Ish-Ran said.

He added that the attack happened as Chabad and Breslover cars celebrating Hanukkah arrived, blasting music from loudspeakers. “Everyone looked toward them and then they heard blasts. Amichai said that at first they thought it was part of the music, but when they started seeing shrapnel on the floor they realized it was a terror attack,” he said.

“Amichai started running along with everyone else, but then he looked around and saw his wife wasn’t with him. He ran to her and saw her on the floor. He stopped her bleeding with his hands until help arrived,” he added.

Haim Silverstein said that while settlers “greatly appreciate the work of the IDF, Shin Bet, and everyone else in the area,” they also felt that the army was being held back from “reestablishing deterrence…so that terrorists and degenerates will think twice, or 10 times, before carrying out such acts. The settlers feel the IDF needs to take a tougher approach.”

His wife, Liora, added: “We want to send a clear message to the government that it’s unthinkable that sweet innocent children are shot at. We cannot accept such a reality.”

Israeli soldiers search for gunmen who opened fire at a bus stop outside the West Bank settlement of Ofra, injuring seven people, on December 9, 2018. (Israel Defense Forces) The military’s search for the perpetrators of the attack entered its second day on Monday, with troops setting up roadblocks and sweeping nearby Palestinian villages.

“IDF soldiers, Border Police officers and security forces are searching the villages in the area. At the same time, the IDF’s intelligence efforts are continuing,” the army said Monday. “The IDF will continue to act until the terrorists are captured and security is restored to residents.”

During the searches, Israeli troops entered the town of Silwad, outside Ramallah and just north of Ofra, late Sunday night, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Wafa news outlet.

In Silwad, local residents clashed with the Israeli troops, throwing rocks and other objects at the military vehicles. In response, the soldiers fired tear gas and other less-lethal riot dispersal weapons at the rioters, according to Wafa. No Palestinian injuries were reported.

The northern entrance to al-Bireh, a town adjacent to Ramallah, was also closed in both directions on Sunday night, Wafa reported.

Two months ago, a Palestinian terrorist shot dead two Israelis at the Barkan Industrial Park. He is still on the run.


Poster Comment:

A proper response to this act of terrorism should be to make all illegal settlements legal and announce that other similar acts of terrorism would be answered by expropriation of PA territory for new settlements.

One who is running or Israeli Congress asks that if the roads are so segregated, how did this terror attack happen? Your call for "desegregation" and letting Jews and Arabs live together, I think you need to remind your Palestinian consitutients that they should hold their end of the bargain in your fictionalized notion of how people can learn to live together in a one- state soluion.

Like Israel, diversity is not the glue that holds America together! We are once again a segregated society, segregated at the behest of the so-called minorities. (1 image)

To avoid future Palestinian attacks, Israeli "settlers" should be removed from the illegal settlements in the West Bank and returned to Israel.

Numerous UN Resolutions have called for this, starting with UN 242 in 1967.

If we are to hear about such tragic circumstances when they happen to Israli's at the hands of Palestinians, then we should hear also about the similar tragic circumstances when carried out at the hands of the Israelis against Palestinians. Unfortunately, the pro-Israel PR machine does a good job of painting themselves as the only victims in the area, particularly in the US media.

A proper response to this act of terrorism should be to make all illegal settlements legal and announce that other similar acts of terrorism would be answered by expropriation of PA territory for new settlements.

If legitimizing an illegal act of building illegal settlements like this is a proper response to the attack on one of the inhabitants of the illegal settlemens, then you might as well just call for genocide of the Palestinians -- or whatever the preferred name for them is.

You're kidding, right? Maybe not, as the MSM is generally pro Israel, especially Fox.

Was it last month when Israelis had that operation where they wanted to, I think plant some listening devices in Palestinian territory, so they sent in an undercover team to do so. Apparently their accents were found suspicious so when security was called and they were about to be detained, the Israeli's opened fire killing about a half dozen of the Palestinians and escaped, while suffering one fatality and I think another seriously hurt. Palestinians retaliated by missiling a military bus which I saw on youtube.

So... what would the headlines have been if it was a Palestinian team that snuck into Israeli territory with the same result? And of course, Israel would have punished the Palestinians with aircraft bombings.

Can you say: Double standard? Some 6 Palestinians were killed by Israel because Israel tried to sneak into their territory. 6 Palestinians likely with families and lots of friends who died NOT because they actually attacked any Israelis at all. Rather they died because Israel "had a right to defend itself".

Which is bullshit. Frankly. At least when cast in the light that Israel is ALWAYS the victim of Palestinian violence. It goes both ways and anyone who always sticks up for Israel always has their head stuck in the sand as well.

As for your list, a quick 30 second search brought up the following:

As regards the media, what nation's media have you been reading. Surely not the Israel-hating American variety. They spend their 'talents' on denigrating Israel when they're not denigrating President Trump.

I'll put you down on the media sycophant list.

Can't say it often enough. So kind of you to point out that it is a separate issue, Mr. Hall Monitor.

You can put me on whatever list suits you, but you asked for a list of some offenses committed by Israelis and I obliged. You didn't specify that I had to find accounts on outlets that are strongly pro-Israel in their bias, like Fox News. I freely admit that finding accounts of Israeli crimes there would be difficult to do.

I for one won't elevate Israel to the status of sainthood and turn a blind eye to crimes and aggressions they commit anytime soon. I won't be manipulated like that.
