The others wounded in the attack were not in life-threatening condition. The shooting occured at a bus stop near the Town of Ofra located in the West Bank.

Doctors managed to deliver the baby in an emergency Cesarean section after the attack and were fighting to stabilize him.

Hamas, which praised last week's United Nations vote in its favor, called the shooting "blessed".
